I have a bad second and third gear in my 02 Neon R/T.
Can I take out just those 2 gears from a regular 5 speed transmission and swap them in?
Trying to avoid buying the whole transmission.
Specificly the Synchros are bad.. can I swap those from a regular 5 speed and use them on r/t gears?

Yup the synchros are the same. "Just swapping" them is alot more involved than you'd think. Plus the 1-2 synchro is not available from chrysler, they'll wanna sell you the whole output shaft for like 800 bux.

I can rebuild it no problem, or if you wanna try, be my guest. I'll sell you whatever parts you want, I probably have 20+ good used 1-2 and 3-4 synchros.

Well now my problem is the third is completely gone, Id rather just do the whole rebuild. How involved is it to get different gear ratios per gear?

you probably need a shift fork too if you cant even get it in 3rd now. chip charges 550 i believe for a rebuild.

There are only 2 ratios for 4th. 1.03 and .97. You wouldn't know the difference. 1.36 for 3rd gear in every t350.
