Hey guys my transmission is about to go..... its acting up really bad. I was wondering if anyone has ever pulled a 5r apart? Will I need any special tools? I was plannin on gettin a suncoast rebuild kit and throwin it in myself. However Ive never done it before! Any advice is appreciated!

Yes you need special tools, and I strongly recommend finding a shop with 5R experience to build it. Or better yet, if you want to diy, just buy a complete tranny from NADP and stick it in - cheaper in the long run, promise.

Yup, transmission rebuilds are best left to the experts. It's one of those things where you either bring it to 'em now, or you bring it to 'em later. I've got mine being built at Diesel Innovations right now.

you can have the best parts out there but in the end of the day it is only as good as the person putting it together.

I understand... Unfortunately I dont have the money for the rebuild and to have it rebuilt right yet! Dont we all wish we had unlimited knowledge?!
