1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z 5.3 Transmission HELPSunshell in my 4L60E failed.
Should I use Aamaco or a local transmission shop?
260,000 miles of flawless operation.
What do you guys suggest rebuild or replace?

Unfortunately the sunshell is only a $40 part, BUT it is also the last thing to come out of the transmission. Most likely there is other damage to the transmission, so you'll probably end up with a rebuild. There is an upgraded sunshell out there, any decent transmission shop will use upgraded parts instead of oem replacement parts.2004 Chevy Colorado

Its not the rebuild kit that cost, its the labor, and the sunshell has been an issue for several years, its a very weak part that fails often, so go back with the upgrade parts as TRPL expressed and you will be fine, I rebuilt mine after that failure in a 2000 model with upgraded parts a couple years ago, my brother has used that vehicle in his business for two years now, I am sure I will never get it back, lol. Clint is pretty dead on with the rebuild cost. And you will have a better tranny than you had when it was new if you use upgrade parts.Life is short compared to history
