Okay FORD wants SEVENTEEN FREAKING DOLLARS A GASKET!!!!!!
(This is for an A4LD btw)
I checked out www.wittrans.com for a source of gaskets, they have the upper for $1.64 or something like that for the .015 oversize, I don't want to order unless I can find both gaskets from the same place. Do the transgo shift kits come with the gaskets? If so, that's the same price ford wants for just gaskets, and I get some extra crap with it.
I went to napa where I got my new 3-4 shift solenoid and asked if they had gaskets for the valve body and they looked at me like I had a dick growing out of my forehead (solenoid PN k56836a 26-40 ohm, 2 prong, $65.00)
Any help/info greatly appriciated!!!

The Ford gaskets may be the bonded variety. Worth the price if they are.

And on that note, your getting both top and lower, already bonded to a new seperator plate. And that is around $17.
