They were actually fine but I stripped one end last year on the driver side so I wasn’t sure I’d get it off the knuckle, since I had to remove the control arm from the subframe last time. So I just bought two new ones since I just got two new 13+ knuckles to fit the front Airtekk struts.Everything is looking good! How do those LCA’s look while they are out. Snapped a bushing on mine the other day, doh!
Andrew, I would do a bit more research on the transmission swap.... for some reason, the 10-12 trans is different than the 13+ in my system.I’ve made a little progress. Picked up the new trans and rdu out of the 2014 SHO with 61k. View attachment 82595
Now to remove my trans it went really well, first I had to remove front brakes, control arms, knuckles, axles, struts, strut tower brace and ptu. View attachment 82596
My ptu has been leaking passed the seal for a minute! Quite the mess to clean up afterward in the engine bay. View attachment 82597
I borrowed my friends cherry picker and snagged a pallet from O’Reillys, cut it down to a smaller size to put my trans on. View attachment 82598
It came out pretty easy, I left the top trans mount attached to the trans and used it to attach chains. Which btw my top trans mount is beat! As you can see compared to a new one….of course looking at the new one…hmmm maybe I should fill it all in?View attachment 82600View attachment 82599
Once I got my transmission out I was able to just rest it on the pallet and slide it out of the way. View attachment 82601
So before I do anything else I figured I should clean it up a bit. I put some plastic down, went through almost a whole Purple Power spray bottle, then actually grabbed a little steamer I have and it came out pretty good. Before.View attachment 82602

Now I think would be a good time to install my hood vents. Slowly but surely picking away at it.
Yes the flywheel needs to be changed to accommodate the 3 bolt TC of the 13+ bc the 10-12 is a 4 bolt. My 2010 trans strategy is erased from cleaning it with purple power….how much of an issue will that be when I switch back to it if I open it and rebuild it?Andrew, I would do a bit more research on the transmission swap.... for some reason, the 10-12 trans is different than the 13+ in my system.
I sell used auto parts as a Team PRP member.. please verify the part numbers for year break down.
I also just bought two used trans... and had to stay with the 10-12 year range on my 2011...
Could just be a simple TC swap... or something greater like a valvebody swap..
My Flex had a 3 bolt - clearly 4 bolts are stronger than 3, the strategy code is also on the valve body (internally).Yes the flywheel needs to be changed to accommodate the 3 bolt TC of the 13+ bc the 10-12 is a 4 bolt.

Ok I thought maybe some 2011-12 might have a 3 bolt. I remember this came up when you bought a GH TC and had to change the flex plate/flywheel. You have upgraded flywheel also correct? I opted to just get an OEM 3 bolt flex plate from Tasca to use with my GH TC.At least on the SHO, the 4 bolt pattern, was switched to a three bolt pattern, mid 2011 model year.
