Going to look at a 98 sst with auto trans. Owner says the trans slips in 1st gear. So I,m thinking an overhaul is in order cause I know I,m going to run the snot out of it. Whats a good trans shop gonna charge $$$ if I drop off the trans to them? Thanks for any advice.

depends on what they find once they open it up, (just clutches and seals or are any hard parts grenaded?)  DEFINITELY don't rebuild the trans without replaceing the converter, and go for a mild shift kit/ better for the trans and you won't hardly notice much difference from stock shift....

I agree with Donram360.  Whether if your gonna run the "Snot" out of it or use it as a daily driver a trans rebuild is gonna cost a couple grand maybe, and if you get a full rebuild have a Transgo shift kit installed. If this 98 SST is cheap but has a great body it may be worth it also.
 
If this SST shifts fine under normal driving conditions and only slips at Wide Open Throttle (4800-5200rpm) while its trying to shift into second gear, that usually means it needs the Transmission Pressure sensor and Solenoid replaced which is way cheaper.

Thanks for the info. I got the truck here now. I haven,t driven it yet because it has a bad front wheel bearing. I,ll fix that first and go from there. And yes it was cheap$$$.
