Actually, it was well spent, I just had the bearings measured with calipers and they do fit! Stoked! They just upgraded to a different design that the old ones with more/smaller rollers. So if you got a 2002 5 speed with the old style bearings they will wear out before the rest of your tranny will and make a lot of rollover noise at all speeds/any gear. I will try to press off the bearings myself. What's with this meet? How many people chime in this thread but don't show up? Btw when I qouted the stealership that didn't include shipping so it would have been about 50$ more for raw parts and they don't return special order parts whatsoever so if they didn't fit I would have to bite the bullet on the whole 180$.
