Hey. Im planning servicing my automatic transmission with a fluid change.
Have anyone did a self service on their SS tranny? If so how did you go about it? Or should i go to a dealership ?

I used to do my own trans fluid changes way back when but I take it to my dealer for that now just for the convenience, the records, and the price, which is comparable to doing it on your own. Especially if your dealer runs $109.99 specials or whatever. By the time you buy the fluid, gasket, and filter you’ll be within a few bucks of their price . Same for brake fluid and cooling system flushes.

However, I do my own differential fluid and brake pad changes because they price those too high for how quick they are IMO.
