Quick question... tranny fluid

Last time I changed the transmission fluid (a/b 25k miles ago) I used a "decent" fluid... but I'd like to switch it to a full synthetic. Anybody
have any recommendations? TIA.

I feel silly recommending anything to you, Mike. You pretty much go with the sheep on most everything, regardless of what is recommended.

JD Adams... we think alike. I bought 4 quarts of the good stuff shortly after I asked the question. LOL. Man shifting is great.

I just caught onto the fact that you're referring to the GT Bullit suspension thing. I returned the Steeda rear sway bar & Steeda subframes. They didn't give me any hassle. I had to pay $20 shipping though.
I can't remember if you use GW subframes or not... but what do you think of them? Heard anything good/bad a/b them? Thx.

Don't feel bad about the bucks. I once spent $67.00 to ship a junk strut tower brace back to some oddball, thieving CS outfit back east who refused to reimburse me for any of it. If you do business with online businesses, you're just going to get burned once in a while, take it or leave it.

GW designs and manufactures all of Ford's FMS suspension parts. Very high quality stuff. Charlene wears a set of their #904 subframe connectors and optional seat bracing. Seriously worth the bucks. You may even be happy enough with just GW subs installed, and not want the springs after all.

Hmmmm.. I'll definitely look into the GW subframes before I get the GT Bullit suspension package... but I am 99% sure I'll want to go all the way with the GT Bullit suspension as well. I'll definitely be taking it to a shop to do what I can't... and I'll print off your web-site tutorial with the "no need for caster/camber" goody. Does GW have any sort of referral program? If you're able to be referred, I'd like to specify you... or somebody that's a good friend of yours that wants it. I've got spare cash coming up fairly soon. I may end up putting it towards 3.73 gears... but who knows.

Looking at Part #909... seems that's what I need to look into. $145... a bit more pricey than Steeda was, but not too bad ($50 more). Think they're worth it?

Ahh, they've changed part #s on me. Yep, the 909's and 922 seat braces are just the ticket. Oh yeah, they're worth it. When you lift one of these bad-boys up out of the box, you'll see what I mean. The frame fabrication shop that installed mine said they'd never seen such good quality subs. The money is a bit of a stretch, but you won't believe how well your car will handle with these installed.

Hmm.. no local dealers though. I didn't have time to wait to order it online. Does Amsoil make a rear-end fluid?

It's what WF squirts when he's got diahrrea. Sorry, just couldn't resist. :)
WF is one of the resident Amsoil proponents. BTW, WF, how many miles since you last changed your oil?

"WF"?? Thought WindsorFox as first...
I changed rear-end fluid 20k miles ago. I changed tranny fluid before this time roughly 30k miles ago. Engine oil.. changed 1k miles ago.

The oil change question was directed toward WF. Many, many moons ago, during a discussion about synthetics (and Amsoil in particular), WF admitted to the group that he changes his engine oil but once a year. IIRC, the reasoning was that Amsoil was "that good". Or something like that.

Oh..... duh. LOL. IIRC, Amsoil recommends u change ur oil once/yearly. At the very least, approves of it. Never used it though... although I'd like to give it a shot.

I've been doing it on the Mustang since the 3rd oil change. It's been at least 8 years. Joe seems to think that I am embarassed by that or something, or that by making reference to it makes him look superior in some way. I use the replacment intervals recomended by Amsoil officially, nothing more nothing less.

Actually 12 months or 35K miles. I probably don't drive 35K in 2 years and now I have a second car.

I don't think you're embarrassed by that at all, WF, and it's not a "superior" thing, either. I'm just totally amazed that a once-a-year oil change would be (a) recommended by a manufacturer and (b) followed by anyone.

Joe, I only change my AMSOIL once a year too, or sometimes even longer if I get lazy. The car now has 236,000 miles on it. What am I doing wrong? :-) All the Best, Steve 15 year independent AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants Dealer Offering wholesale prices to all Dealerships available E-mail me for details

Actually, what you're doing wrong is spamming the group (as you did over in the dodge truck group) with ads for commercial products.
As for the once-a-year oil change, to each his own. However, I wonder what the results would be if we took a poll on frequency of oil changes.
Serious question, Steve: What effect does not changing your oil for a whole year have on a factory warranty with a schedule that recommends an oil change every 3k miles?
