I'm going to research the kit right now... And the brace... If I can kill some of the shudder that would be perfect and I'm getting ready to service her shortly anyway!
The good part about the minimaxx was the optional transmission tune I bought... Made night and day difference. The truck doesn't struggle at in town speeds, no more shift to 5th and 6th at 30-40mph! Now she holds forth and locks the TC in 3rd and forth as a way to drop in gear revs without shifting, the truck is so much happier now and is ready to go at all speeds in town vs the chug along she did before.
I think that the plate kit and the bar might make that the perfect combo now... Im excited to hear about it!
The steering brace took away the wander I was getting after installing 35's.... The truck just seemed to walk around, like I had new found slop in the box, meanwhile alignment was perfect and the front is tight as can be... Installed the brace and it is perfect again. I guess that the steering box flexes on the frame with bigger tires, newer trucks take awhile to get to wander but older ones like mine seem to get it right away. The brace bolts both frame members together and also bolts to the box and keeps everything tight and in line... Made a big difference, on something like yours you would not feel much of a difference but you would be stopping the problem before it starts...
How hard was it to do the plate kit? Just drop the VB
and go? I've played around in many a transmission but never one of ours!
