3rd and 4th gear sound like a bucket of rocks on decell going down a hill.
My 3rd and 4th are the worst as well... though 2nd was the worst until I swapped to the BAC5.2 cocktail. Since changing fluids my trans has gotten much quieter. The decel noise is still there, just not as bad as before.
I can't imagine it would be cheap to replace the bearings in the trans.. Is it worth it to swap the bearings or just start saving for a 6mt swap??
