If trans = transmission, which one?
If converter = torque converter, I feel the dealer is full of crap.

I, along with a lot of members, have out trucks lifted a lot more than just to level. Personally mine is about 3" over stock.

I say "jump" you say how high you lifted it to level?

How high did you lift it?

Take it to a different dealer if that's what this one is saying. There are of guys on here that have the dealer work on their trucks with lifts on them.

Define "acting up" that the torque converter is doing.
