Sonnax offers complete GM Powerglide planetary assemblies in a variety of gear set options and configurations to ensure you get the performance you want without overpaying or sacrificing quality. Each comes fully assembled and ready to install.

Track-proven to 3,000 HP, Sonnax Extreme planetaries are the finest quality Powerglide planetary assemblies in the world. From carrier and output shaft to gears and thrust washers, every component is refined for maximum durability in the most demanding applications. The ring gears are even pre-drilled for the Sonnax stabilizer system to prevent vibration and broken reverse friction plates. Extreme gear sets feature Sonnax premium sun and pinion gears that also undergo the same advanced processing used in Formula 1™, NASCAR® and other high-end professional racing circuits.

This kit is compatible with all Sonnax extreme duty input shafts, although it's primarily for use when building a big input shaft system.

  • Includes all the same parts found in complete Sonnax 1.69 assembly kits, minus the output shaft, rear sun gear and washer that must be purchased separately when building a big shaft system
  • Top-quality sun and pinion gears undergo additional advanced processing for unmatched durability
  • 24-Tooth billet drum flange designed to work exclusively with Sonnax clutch drums
  • Bolt-together carrier for ease of service
