Default Do seals go bad after tranny sits for a few years?

I need to get a FWD tranny for my EJ18. I see a lot of used trannys from 92-95, but if they sit for a fe years is there and incresed risk of leaks due to stuff drying out?

Yup, you answered your own question.

the fluid is what lubricates the seals. if it sits and no fluid flows the seals will not get lubrication and they will dry out and fail earlier.

What about just replacing the external seals, I havn't looked into which seals should get replaced. But internally a used auto should run okay right?
