For example: A 2g FWD a/t diff will fit a 2G AWD a/t transmission if you swap the bearings, but then the axles won't fit.
I want to say that FWD a/t or manual axles from a 2g the same. Also with a/t and manual awd axles. I know for a fact the 2g fwd's are bigger. 1g-A fwd axle inner cups are the same size as the 90-99 awd.
I'm using a 2g fwd trans in my mirage right now, and I'm swapping a 1g fwd trans this week so I can have equal length axles from the awd.
