Is that an aftermarket planet? I've specfically read that aftermarket planets are weaker than the stock ones. In fact I have never seen aftermarket planets for sale on any of the the tranny parts sites I've been to. There is another part called the beast I think.

That looks like one of the aftermarket cheaper versions. Here's a picture of the GM unit which is a machined steel version and a cast iron version that I broke once before.







And a top view of the GM steel 65E part which you can see is different from your broken cast iron piece.

yea i have it wrong the beast is the sunshell but still this 5 gear planetary didnt hold very well




This time make sure they put a GM part back in there. The correct part number is 24227002. That one is a machined steel part and not a cast part. I haven't had one of the steel one's break.
