2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods Discussion, Trans lash in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Does anyone know how much play there is supposed to be on the output shaft of the trans when the ...
I am interested as well, trying to figure out if it's rebuild time... hard to get into first from a stop and a vibe in 5th 6th...
Keep thinking some gears, carbon fibre synchros, and brass shift forks be making things right
I had replaced my rear end on sunday thinking that the excessive lash was that but now im thinking its either the clutch pp or fw is warped or broken springs on the clutch disk or the dreaded transmission being worn ha.
Yeah, I've got clunk with the CSS 8.8" kit still, but each thing along the way has helped (new clutch, motor/trans mounts, rearend/driveshaft/axle kit).
BUT..... I did some damage at the drag strip that isn't all the way sorted out yet. Got the axle fixed, but still have a wicked vibration at 35mph, and then ~60 and up. Might be a wheel bearing, might be carrier bearing, might be a driveshaft/diff/trans??? It's car speed based. Not sure that's related to the clunk, but both suck
I suspect my trans is really showing it's age, I just turned 123k miles. Very few of them have been easy. Hope I can limp through till Spring.
