I didn't say that
My rebuild kit came with all the clutches, the steels, gaskets, seals, and o-rings. Oh, and the adjustable modulator.
Depending on how damaged your unit is, you will need to buy the hardparts separately. This is where taking your time pays, as you will need to inspect almost every part. Even I thought I had everything I needed, and I was almost done...something told me to check the oil pump. I did...and it was heavily damaged on the inside. Unusable actually.
You will also need to buy thrust washers. Most kits do not come with them, some of them do. If your kit doesn't have them, they can be gotten through the dealer for not much money.
Here are links to my trans builds, teardowns, etc...
