    Default Steel braided tranny cooler lines.

    Does any one know of any preassembled kits for the 4L60E cooler lines going to the rad. I don't like the rubber ones and would like to put in some steel braided lines. They don't have to have quick connectors or anything fancy like that. any feedback would be great thanks

    Wait, your truck stock had rubber lines for the transmission cooler??? That's a first for me. When I put an aftermarket tranny cooler in my Suburban, I ran all rubber transmission cooler lines, and was then chastised by jimmiiee for doing that.

    Who me? LOL I didn't mean any harm Chris. The factory lines are always steel but they do have rubber sections. You could probably take your stock steel / rubber lines to a hydraulic shop and have some braided lines crimped on. Personally I think the stock ones are OK just as they are as long as they don't touch anything.

    Try replacing the wire clips with new ones. The wire clips get worn. The alternative is to cut off the quick disconnects and change the fittings to the old style.
