48re governor solenoid and pressure sensor?

The trans is acting up, common back and forth shifting spudders. So I've been looking at the governor solenoid and most recomend replacing the pressure sensor while I'm in there. So I got 2 questions. Should I go with the BW solenoid or the GM kit? Also where is a good place to order them from? Thanks in advance.

Re: 48re governor solenoid and pressure sensor?

Naw, the stealership wants $84 for a little under $50 part. Besides that's why I'm looking at the BW solenoid, it is bigger and is said to flow better and not get clogged as easy or so they say and its a few bucks cheaper than the OEM solenoid. Or $150 for the GM kit, but is it worth the extra money. Just trying to hold on to this one untill I save the pocket change for a built tranny.

Put in the Borg Warner solenoid and be done with it. There's no use for the GM kit now that they offer a drop in solenoid. I've had good luck with the one's I've installed.

Where did you order from? Cheapest one I've found is $82. That's double the price for the OEM solenoid, surely they're cheaper somewhere else.

Mine also is gear hunting but I also have a vibration when it goes into OD, and gets worse around 70mph. Would these 2 parts fix the vibration too? That would be nice and make me mad at the same time considering all the time and money ive spent trying to fix this.

I got a new governor pressure sensor and governor solenoid from the dealer parts counter. No more problems for the last 26,000 miles. My stock parts lasted 114,000 miles.
