I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 sport package 4x4 an I can't seem to find
a 5.2 4x4 trans anywhere but I found a 5.9 trans an it's 4x4 an I was
wondering if it would bolt up an if so what would I need to do so I could put it

It should be the same trans.

they should be the same trans but the old 5.9 were balanced on the torque converter may want to check that I would! I"d also use my 5.2 converter just to be safe unless I thought it was bad I would have my 5.2 converter rebuilt or get a good used one hope this helps

I am sorry I assumed yours was a automatic that's what I have run into in the past but I am old car mechanic idn if the 360 is still externally balanced of not just a question I would ask good luck
