700r4 4l60e rear planetarys

what about rear planetary failure due to lube. What about the input to output oil seal worn out at 50,000 miles. i think maybe it could be the heavy overhung loads on the bearings. What do you think?

the loss of lube oil or reduced lube flow is often the cause of planetary gear failure.

There are causes for this loss of lube;

bushing wear, converter clutch material clogs cooler and lines.

Over heating the trans, tow too much weight in OD will wear the gears a bit faster.

Lack of proper maintenance. Fluid service at 30 - 35k miles is a good idea
