Will a 98 foz 5mt be a direct replacement for my 02? I know I need to make sure FD ratios match but is there anything else that would be different?

That is what I figured from everything I've read but wanted to make sure. My current 5mt has synchro and/or a bent 3/4 shift fork. Will shift into third and fourth but pops out of 4th almost immediately, will stay in third. I did have my center diff destruct about two months ago and maybe didn't get all the pieces out from that.

I have a gutted 5mt at home that I got the diff from. Would just swap that stuff over but I don't have the time for my foz to be down as it is the only car I have at the moment. So looking for something used that I can just swap in. And than worry about my current trans at a later time.

Only reason I specifically asked about the 98 is the fact there is one available near me. I was assuming any SF one would work. But better safe than sorry. Thanks for the help.
