OK I have a 2000 elantra and a few months ago I lowered it by cutting the springs (ghetto, I know). I dont know if that has any relevance but a couple weeks ago the tranny started making strange noises when I had the wheel turned all the way to one side or the other. It gradually go worse untill it is a loud popping noise now and the car jerks and pops when turning or accelerating or decelerating. i know the spider gears are fried. What im asking is what trannys will fit or what diff will fit. the junk yards are telling me i can only use a 1999 or 2000 tranny from an elantra. what trannys will fit with or without modification. what diff will fit. i am a professional mechanic, but i cant see paying 700 or 800 for a used tranny if i can go to the u pull it and get one for 50 or 100 then ill be happy. if all else fails ill weld the bastard.
