    looking for a 4L80E for a friend of mine for a 96 chevy 2500 4x4 5.7L around the NH area or if anyone knows if shipping's cheep enough from anywhere? not looking to break the bank we can get a re-man for around $800 but the trucks got over 200k on her so tryin to keep that as a last option.

    thanks guys

    Not sure what kind of reman you will get for $800, not sure what you will get out of the bone yard for any cheaper

    It cost me $1,500 to rebuild my 4L80E in my 98 K2500. And that did not include removal and installation.

    I would be wary of an $800 reman 4L80. $1,500 is more like it, plus R&R

    96 will only fit 95-96. Ask me how I know. I've got a rebuilt 94 in the garage I'd sell cheap. The older cases do not have the mounting boss for the NSBU switch

    no, the older ones had the trans lines the same place the th400 had.
    the new case ones have one line in the front and one toward the rear.
    i have pull more of these trans than i can even remember

    Guess I'm comparing 95,96,97,and a 99. The 95,96 are the same and 97,99 are the same. I don't have first hand knowledge on pre 95 4L80's

    Where are you finding remans for $800 bucks? Just had mine rebuilt a few weeks ago and paid $1000.00 with new convertor and 2yr unlimited milage warranty. Best deal I found. I couldn't find a reman cheaper than $1800.

    it was my mistake it was rebuilding the one out of the truck at the local tranny shop (he does really good work, well known around here) for $800 not a reman
