1. does ivey also upgrade the lubrication mechanism for the pins? I know one of the shops here does stronger pins and also puts scoops on the assembly to ensure better lubrication.
2. Sounds like a decent price.

The pin upgrade alone isn't enough and will eventually fail again.

On your other question, what's it matter? You already bought it.

I don't think they do. Jack's Transmissions does do it, and has a great write up on it.

I could barely read this post, but you're wasting even more money by not doing it right. The pins fail because fluid cannot reach them. They could be made out of titanium sprinkled with dolphin piss for good measure and they'll still fail. Save some cash and do it right.

It's really not that bad man. Save a few pennies and do it right. I'm telling you, you don't want that car apart more than is necessary for several reasons. Speaking from experience. ;)
