Limitations of the GM 4L60 series OE input housing are the root cause of 3-4 burnup in performance applications. The weak OE backing plate’s limited space. Stop the failure.

Sonnax Smart-Tech input housing kit 77733-06KA makes room for a taller clutch pack anchored in place by a stronger backing plate — the most reliable way to increase clutch capacity and protect against destructive heat.

To avoid the problems found with older, OE housing designs, Sonnax starts with the latest production, new housings from GM. These improved housings have splines for the input shaft that are cut at minimum spec for reliable shaft retention and sealing. The housings also benefit from added material for a thicker, more consistent cross-section that protects against breakage.

Combined with other Sonnax improvements, the Smart-Tech input housing guarantees the ultimate combination of durability and protection against failure in high horsepower, higher pressure applications. The housing also is available with a pre-installed, Sonnax heavy-duty input shaft.

  • Physically larger clutch pack area for increased 3-4 clutch capacity without sacrificing clutch durability. Use your choice of:

Eight .067" frictions with seven .095" steels

Nine .062" frictions with eight .077" steels

  • Anchored backing plate keeps clutches parallel to stop the flexing and distortion that leads to heat build-up
  • 100% New housing optimizes input shaft fitment and is further upgraded for significantly more resistant to fatigue failure
  • Steel reinforcement sleeve prevents breakage in the spline area
  • Custom backing plate replaces OE retaining ring to eliminate risk of blowout

Requires '91-later 3-4 apply ring; requires '97-later ring gear; requires '97-later dual-cage return spring; requires '87-later forward backing plate; requires '97-later stamped steel forward piston. Cannot be used with aluminum forward piston or Sonnax billet forward piston 77764-01. See instructions for further detail.
