How much $$$ to rebuild a 700R4?

If a 700R4 was dropped off to get a stock rebuild, what would be the cost for parts and labor?

Re: How much $$$ to rebuild a 700R4?

I had this done back in February for my 700r4 and it came in a hair under two grand. I can give you a more specific number, but I'd have to sort through all of the receipts I've got locked up for my car.

Edit: I was a little off! Don't worry, in a good way.

I paid $1,241 for the rebuild. That was at a locally owned and run shop.

Dont get a "stock" rebuild. Pay 4 some upgrades, you will be glad you did.

Re: How much $$$ to rebuild a 700R4?

I rebuilt my 700-r4 myself for $350.00. That was with a full rebuild kit with alto clutches and steels, kevlar band, trans-go jr. shift kit, corvette servo, replacement valve body, new lockup solenoid, and The Beast heavy duty sun-shell.

Re: How much $$$ to rebuild a 700R4?

I recall getting a quote once for aamco or some transmission shop with a name something like that once, and believe it to have been $1200, most of the money is in the labor. If you were to do it yourself, you could get a performance rebuild kit for $400-700, and build it to handle a lot more power and shift harder. Course you would have to know what you were doing and get some specialty tools most likely.

Lots of help here if you want to build it or have it built.

Re: How much $$$ to rebuild a 700R4?

1000-1200 dollars, I'd call Pro-built or Trans-Go and get a kit w/upgrades, it'd be worth the extra $, have your builder look into it....

Yeah, I'll probably rebuild mine myself. I just wanted to know what most people were spending on parts and labor.
