Default 4l80e intermediate shaft

for high hp builds i was advised to use a solid intermediate shaft . my conserns are (lube ) . By having a solid shaft does this restrict lube to the
output shaft bearing ? , also does this restrict lube to the rear planetary ?

4l80e locks in reverse no 4th

Looks like you should be running a solid shaft anyway?

Thanks . Hopefully my planetaries will survive this rebuild, and not fail due to
Previous lube issues .
