So I am changing the Halfshafts on my 97 SHO and noticed a small leak around my AX4N transmission pan. I am thinking since i have the car up and apart, I should change that gasket too. I read on the forums that the gasket and filter come as one package from AutoZone. Does anyone have any suggestions on this? I don't want to flush it because i am still working on the halfshafts now but if that is the best solution for correcting this with minimal stress on the transmission i can do it. I really don't want to cause the transmission to prematurely fail because of a flush ( i read that it may cause it to fail). After removing the halfshafts some of the transmission fluid drained out so i have to replace that liquid anyway. Any advice would be helpful. thanks.
