shift kit

I was wondering if anyone could help with a shift kit. Dont know which one to get really. Dont really tow much but want it to be a lil better. Right now it seems to not want to shift when it should. So may have to rebuild it as well. Any help on this would be greatful. I prob shouldadd that this is for my 97 f350 crew

If its not shifting right stock, a shift kit wont fix it. You need to figure out whats wrong first, fix it. Then you can get a shift kit for it. I recommend trans go. They are very complete and work well. But fix your problem first.

There are many things it could be. Its just delayed upshifts right? If so i would hook scanner up to it, drive and watch what the shift selonoids are doing, then go from there.

It could be your tuner.but if your going to drop your pan and change filter.
i would say get a good valve body.and call it a day.
