on my 97, I removed the 1 - 2 spring, and both the 2 - 3 springs... doesn't shift hard enough.. =) I still get nice barks though on some pavements. I also did a 94 Cougar 4.6 and we didn't replace any parts. When i did my car it was my first time in a transmission.. I had fuzzy pictures to go by.. so I accidently removed the OD servo. Well after I got it out I knew it was the wrong one, so I put it back in.. little to realize OD did not work. 2 weeks later I took it all back apart again and had to engage the OD band. Sucked. I didn't realize when I took the OD servo out, it released the "band" (which doesn't look anything like a band...) I'll get a dennis chip and get some better shifts =)
