94 AWD 4EAT tailshaft extension building
Posted 08 November 2004 - 07:29 PM
I've taken up the call. I'm going to start collecting all the facts I can related to repairing the troublesome pre-98 4EAT tailshaft extension with the metal-on-aluminum bearing scenario found only on the AWD units. (the famous "torque bind")
Rather than call it quits and simply pass the wagon on to the trans shop, where they'd just trash the trans as a unit and bolt in a rebuild, I want to try my hand at ONLY doing the extension portion. My '94 4EAT shifts and operates absolutely fine. I really don't think the torque converter or the clutches in the trans housing have been harmed...just that the bearing support needs to be replaced along with the bearing, the solenoid, and fluids.
The best case scenario would be me finding a used take-out tranny complete with AWD tailshaft extension from a 98-up 4EAT. I'm not holding my breath!
However, if anyone knows of such a beast...I'm all ears!
And...more importantly...if anyone has done such a remove & replace (r&r) to their AWD pre-94 Soob, love to hear about it!
