Did you want replacement instructions to do it yourself or want to know how much it would cost at a shop? Thanks.

I want to know why transmission is grinding when I put it in reverse about 30% of time this happens
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

If the shift forks in transfer case get worn out it can slip out of proper position causing the grinding which I'm guessing is the situation so transfer case is grinding and since it is right next to transmission it sounds like the transmission. Transfer case is about a 3 hour job to replace at a shop and here are replacement instructions. Let me know if you have questions, thanks. https://www.dropbox.com/s/akf56s7s6meso9r/tcrr.pdf?dl=0​
