Transmission or rear gears?
For the last 12-16 months my car's 1-2 shift has been rather 'torquey'(?). My right rear wheel routinely breaks traction. At first it was kind of cool and maybe a bit fun but it obviously has a dark side which is now creeping up when I'm driving normally. It also is destroying the outer frame to strut rod bushing. I don't mind changing that bushing because it's rather easy but I don't want to lose control whenever winter comes back.
The only thing that I've physically done to the tranny was a filter and fluid change a few years ago. I do have a 'Jerry Chip' and the traction issue does coincide with the installation of the chip but I believe only because the increased line pressure makes a broken or missing spring more obvious. I want to do the Jmod and I'm aquiring the rest of the pieces for that but I feel like I'm using the Jmod to fix a problem. Maybe in this case that just the way it is.
I was considering adding Trac-lok because I want to install larger gears anyway. The tune is for 3:73 so maybe that has something to do with it.
Unless someone thinks I'm looking at this wrong I think I'm better off doing the Jmod before the larger gears.

Reason: Maybe I'm an idiot IDK.
