on both the 1-2 accumulator and the 3-4 accumulator, i put the spring in 1st. the earlier units used to have the piston first on both, but ive noticed the later 4l60e's they put the spring in first for the 1-2. i put the spring in the 3-4 accumulator in first because the 3-4 shift is already naturally soft on the shift from the factory, doing it like i described, gives a fairly decent 3-4 shift.
you know, with all the extra effort your putting into this build, your costs have probably been through the roof. the need for the sonnax accumulators to me is overkill, i dont even use them on my builds. if i find excessive wear on the accumulators from the pin, i just get oem replacement accumulators and they work fine.
hopefully in the end, you will have a virtually "bullet proof" 4l60e that will live longer than it did from the factory.
i see from what you have for location that your in the desert. where bouts you at? im a tucson az native, and am in process of moving back (in benson right now at my dads house getting ready to drive back out to NC to get my stuff and get moved back out here).
if your not too far, i would be happy to help you when i get back from the move.

firmer 1 - 2 shift = put piston in housing first.

OK thanks for that guys

Firmer 3-4 shift = 3-4 accumulator spring first, then piston.

Firmer 1-2 shift = 1-2 accumulator piston first, then spring.
