    Has anyone done this? If so, when should it be done?

    Does this exist on our transmissions?

    I believe this is an old C4. I 'think' we only have 'shift solenoids' on our transmissions :)

    Edit: I don't know what transmissions are used in your year Mustang. I miss read thinking it was a 2011+ section. Sorry...

    Even with an older trans, you still have bands and shift solenoids & clutch packs.
    Bands are used as brakes, to stop that drum from spinning when needed. When
    they slip, you get a sloppy shift. If you don't adjust them, the bands will wear
    faster because of the slip. I have a 2003 Silverado, and it has ONE band in it.
    My VW has no bands, and my '07 Charger had no bands.

    Chrysler went to no the bands or sprags a long time ago, and many have followed
    suit. The brakes are now in the drum with the clutches. Clutches have a K#
    designation, and brakes have a B# designation. Bands are bands...

    The 05-09 has the 5R55S, the diagram shows it has three bands;
    OD
    Intermediate
    Low/Reverse

    Two part# 25s on the diagram, and 26,27, and 28 is the adjusters. Those two are the
    OD and Intermediate Brake/Band.

    Part#85, band, is not adjustable, low/reverse.

    3 clutch packs...
