Um... bolts dont just loosen up assuming they have been installed corectly. Did the threads somehow get messed up? Assuming your paying for this out of pocket, I would almost use lock wire, lock tight ETC before I just spent money to spend money for bolts loosening up.

Wonder if something inside is bent causing a vibration. or a bad U joint or...

[QUOTE=BLACK SMOKE 09;5139755]well after my torque coverter bolts have worked themselves loose

I had the same issue and had to replace the flex plate. While it was down I also had Chaz the tranz man replace the converter and up grade the VB.

Question is who retightened the bolts?? If the dealer did then I'm thinking that they are responsible for said replacement they are saying that you need.

Also I do believe that Chaz got a converter from Wally at Fte and I am quite pleased with it. My truck is a DD and strickly stock so it works for me....HTH

Goerend triple disc, just shy of 1500 but comes with a lifetime warranty. Love mine!

ive looked at goerend, garmon, suncoast, ats, and revmax. revmax is the cheapest, however there all reasonably priced. looking for a tripple billet tq and billet flex plate. it may be over kill but atleast i would have piece of mind that i shouldnt have any problems out of it. im ordering a tq and flex plate when i get home this evening, so.....

i purchased the stage 4 revmax 3 disk 300 lower and couldnt be happier. night and day over stock. lock up is firm but not harsh. ive heard some 3 disk can have such an aggressive lockup theyve been known to break stock inputs.

Most likely going with rev max. Should I get the low, supper low, or high stall Stator upgrade?
