Hmmmm. Since you're sure (?) it's not the DOJs, then either its the carrier bearings INSIDE the trans or the trans itself. Regardless, just swap in a used trans, as the labor to replace the inner bearings isn't worth the risk of screwing it up.

I'm sorry what is DOJ and I figured it was the gears or bearings inside cause the granny fluid has what looks like rust or metal in it.


Double Offset Joint: the inner joint of a half-axle.

do you know where i can order a transmission for it that won't cost an arm and a leg.


eBay or ask a salvage yard to do a nationwide search for you. FAS in CT is a reliable source.
