Transmission Overhaul advise

Hi all,

Like I said in a thread before, my transmission is shot. My X is '93 with automatic transmission (A4LD). I am planning to do it myself (I have some mechanical experience) following a thread I found in this forum: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98027&highlight=A4LD+Rebuild+Diary

I found this heavy duty upgrade kit on Ebay:

Is it worth to get it? I am planning to take her to the trail (it will include some mild rock crawling).

Is there anything I need to get before I get started? Should I think about a better torque converter?

Thanks,

Fabio

IMHO that is way overpriced. PM me for some other suggestions. And yes replace your TC in your rebuild. Not the only reason, but most rebuilt TC's have brazed fins. You want that.
