    Anybody know a good tranny shop in Austin, Texas? Or any to avoid. This is for a Ford C5 (yes C5). I just need a good quality rebuild, nothing fancy. Not too thrilled with the last place that did it which why I'm looking for recommendations (or damnations).

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the response. I might need the number when (and if) I ever get the engine and tranny pulled on my Jimmy. I'll contact you back then.

    When I lived in Austin, I took my daily driver to the Aamco on Burnet. Not only did they do a good job, they also showed me what the dumbass that rebuilt it the first time did wrong. The first rebuild lasted about 15,000 miles, the Aamco rebuilt lasted about 80,000 miles and was cheaper. The first loser didn't have a new cervo to fit, so he ground the sides of a different one to try and make it fit.

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?
