...well you should size them up to make sure the bolt pattern is the same...also you could check with your local wrecking yard to see if they know of any differnces...if lenght and dimensions are good, and no systems have changed (such as control of fuel, spark) you'd have to stick with the old configuration, so you'd be able to avoid major surgery.

if changes were not made in the pcm for shift control ,the jacks are different i assume they must change them on a weekley basis. better check with a friendly auto wrecker as they have data on this

Yes. 1996-2002 Cavalier equipped with 2.4L engines uses the same 4- speed automatic transmissions as well as the 5-speed manual transmissions.

Depends on which motor & transmission are in each of the 2. For example of the differences of the 2; The front subframe of a 2001 chevy cavalier 2.4 or 2.2liter is different then of a 1996 cavalier. They don't line up, from the tie rod ends to the motor & the tranny mounts. The tranny in which u speak could fit if everything is the same. Are both cars 5speed or automatics , are they both 2.2liters or are they 2.4 liters. And also u need to let me know this so I can tell u the correct answer. I have 2 1998 z24 cavaliers & also a 2001 z24 & a 2010 chevy colbalt ss. I have built, rebuilt, mixed and matched parts, I have a bit of experience with cavaliers. Also something u can look into are pontiac us fires of the same years with the same motor as cavaliers. Even the sunfires dashboards fit cavaliers dashes in the same year range. Just food for thought.
