Good source for gear box parts r380 transmission

I have a local performance transmission and differential shop that is going to tackle my transmission overhaul. Who are some great resources for parts for r380 rebuilds? Right now the only one I've found is an r380 overhaul kit from RDS for about $500.

Thanks

Matt

Frankly speaking, after having gone through a rebuild of a 2.5na diesel and an LT77 gearbox and had a brutal time I would NOT spend another dime with Craddocks, ever.

We received parts that were NOS and rusted and pitted and incorrect parts left and right despite givin them every single serial number and detail of the vehicle you could imagine.

Not a happy customer and no real sense that they wanted to sort things out in the end which solidified the feeling and bad taste left in my mouth..

X3. Ship it to Rob Dassler or at the very least find out what the cost difference will be. My bet is you are better off having someone who knows them inside and out work on it even if it costs a bit more.
