    I have a 96 k1500 that needs a new flexplate, I'm going to do the flexplate, the tranny fluid, transfer case fluid, all the u joints Is there anything else I should do when i have it all apart, maybe the torque converter, it drove fine before the stater started messing up.

    Thanks Joe/515customs

    Being a 4L60, if you have not put the "beast" in it yet, now would be a good time to do that as well. Otherwise, when it fails (and it will) you will be wishing you did it now. The "beast" is a hardend reaction sun shell gear availible in the aftermarket. When the OE sun shell gear fails, you will loose reverse, 2nd and OD.

    I would also do the torque converter seal on the front of the trans.
