well somthing is making noise, after doing some reading on here im lead to a tq and or a flexplate/flywheel. so i figure either way the converter has to come out, and i have 180k on the clock and dont know the history. i dont have any "problems" other than noise. no vibs, or surging or slipping..ya da ya...

what year is your truck? mine makes a **** ton of noise, and it's a 99. from the research I've done on here...it's generally the torque converter on 99's, and the flex plate on other years.

Don't have any of those....

However, another thing I've learned on here, is if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If you've got 180k on the clock, your tranny is probably headed out in the not too distant future - somewhere in the vicinity of 20k miles.

If you replace your tc and flex plate now, you're just going to have to replace the tc again when the transmission dies, and be out that much more cash.

So, like I said, from my research on here, my recommendation is to suck it up and deal with the noise until things break, and then replace everything at once the right way.

price it out...it's not cheap.

Best quote I've gotten for a rebuild is ~$2500 all said and done. And that's pretty much a stock rebuild with a better TC.

Like I said, your best bet is to wait and save some dough, and then replace when it blows up.
