I have a 1988 gt convertible it has a t5 in it.When i go into fourth gear it starts to grind and then goes in to gear i am thinking it is the syncronizers for that gear should i rebuild whole transmission or just put syncronizers in it has 100k on it and i have a lot of noise through shifter. I have never rebuilt a transmission just r and i them can anybody direct me to a thread for rebuilding five speeds or do you guys think i should spend the money to have it bench built ?:scratchchin

W/ all the loose bearings in the input shaft I wouldnt recommend trying this yourself. It only cost $750 to rebuild by a reputable shop, if you pull yourself.

I agree....if you've never rebuilt one, I wouldn't suggest trying it on your own. If you go to www.ttcautomotive.com and look under the heading of product literature, you can download the T5 service manual for free.
With 100K on it, I would rebuild the whole tranny. If you simply replace the syncros in 4th and put it back in, you'll be tearing it back out in no time to replace the rest.
