is it worth putting a shift kit in my bronco? I been thinking about this for awhile, it will be off-road 60% of the time highway probably 10% and regular stop&go 30% (guessing). If I do decide to do this where do i find a kit?
Im gonna do a search to see how to put one in and if i can find any other info.
the only thing i have heard with shift kits is they seem to wear the clutch packs a little sooner...nothin extremely fast but just a little sooner...so if you have a high mileage one you might notice slipping sonner....
yea, i loved it in my t/a, bark the tires at 60 when i slammed the pedal and downshifted into second.....prolly not good fer the driveline but ohwell.... (prolly wasn't good for the driveline when i had reversed maxed out and then just slid it into drive and was rolling backwards with tthe tires goin fowards ....the th400 tranny and 12 bolt rear held up though)
oh and shift kits actually improve the tranny life from what i have read. because now it slides into gears smooth which heats the clutchs and the fluid up alot and burns it quicker. the shift kit goes faster so less friction is taking place so less heat build up.
my dads T/A has a shift kit and i love it. barking 2nd and 3rd kicking the back sideways between shifts. its great.
yea, stick with B&M, they worked great for me when i had to return a defective valve body and even gave me a credit...it is a pretty easy thing to do to, just yank off the pan, then filter, then valve body, install the new one, new filter, and bolt back up and enjoy fun tire frying...
