      joe- what sort of help do you need? Do you have the transmission already, or are you looking for one?

      Well, in all honesty, if you don't have any idea what you're doing down there, I'd take it to a shop. I would find a small independant shop that will install a trans that you bring to them- save teh markup by not letting them buy it for you... You can search through www.car-part.com to find a transmission (used) to replace yours with. But you'll have to do some searching on the forum for directions to do a swap by yourself, it has been documented a few times.

      I suggest that you read the sticky thread in the transmission section called the 5R55E rebuild diary. The low/reverse servo is a piston that engages the low/reverse band. The O rings are around it to make a seal.

      car-part.com is really just a search engine which shows a bunch of different junkyards and parts resellers that have the parts you're looking for. It will depend on the place you buy a transmission from as to if they will want your old transmission or not. When you call them, you'll have to ask them if they require it. Also, most of the places on there will ship also, if that is needed...
