    After many years of listening to it rattle, I think it's time to rebuild my t45. Anybody use The T45 Source?

    I've talked to them a few times and they seem like good guys. I know a few people that have used them and had nothing but good things to say about them.

    Very curious to know what exactly the T45 'death rattle' is that you speak of.

    Do t45s have the same issue with the input shift bearing that the T5s had? I've never torn into mine.

    They are very simple trannies. Some normal hand tools, a few tricks and a set of eaton lockring pliers and your good to tare down!

    I agree, I've never heard of a rattle before. I'm definitely curious to hear about it too. As for the source they're the #1 place to take your T45 to have it built
