Billet shafts are completely unnecessary for a daily driver.
I would take a hose to your radiator and transmission coolers. They could be getting plugged up. I would also wonder if the factory transmission sensor is defective (unless you have an actual transmission temp gauge). If you are stuck and have to idle put the transmission in neutral. That will help it to stay cooler.Fred, I just bought the truck 2 months ago. 384,000 on trans. It worked for a few days but I got a knocking noise, found out my flex plate was cracked. Then it started slipping so I dropped the pan. No metal shavings but fluid was BLACK!!! Filter didn't look like it had ever been changed So I flushed it. OD/LU solenoids look wore/bad. Dropped the VB everything seems to be nice. But I just don't have a good feeling about it. It's a hit or miss. Some days she's a charm others not so much. And I have decided for the triple disc. And as for the cooler I think it's shot. Sometimes the trans will overheat after 2 minutes of idling. The lines were cracked and the previous owner rigged it with a hose and it leaks. Sorry for the long post.
