All you have to do is rebuilt reverse right? I have the same problem and mines an 05, but 05 and 06 both shared the NSG370 6 speed. Just doesn't make since to cost that much just to rebuild reverse even with the labor
I guess it's actually a pretty big job to do. I talked to a few different shops and they don't even want it in their shop because it's such a pain in the a$$. So idk I'll figure something out. I just hope my baby is drivable for when I get back from college!

Short wheel base plus wider tires and a light vehicle is just bad news on ice. Stay safe. Gota drive easy and turn slowly.

Also there is groaning and squeaking coming from left and right tires making me believe that those joints need replacing too, but I believe the groaning maybe my power steering pump dying on me
I think look at them but make an educated thought if 5 hey are worn or not post some pictures if you can

I have a zone 3" and I did the t case drop. You do not need to get lower control arms but you will need to get the adj trackbar.
