Can the back axle assembly from an 06 Mitsubishi Eclipse go on an 02 Mitsubishi Eclipse

My car has 143000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Based on the interchange data that is published at Car-Part.com, the axle used for the 2006 model year is not a direct interchange for 2002. Of course, it is always possible to modify parts but that is burdensome and also risky. There are quite a few model year 2002 axle assemblies for your make and model listed for sale at Car-part.com (just use the search function) so your best bet really is to simply buy the part that corresponds to your model year and that will of course save you from experiencing any fitment problems. Should you need assistance procuring parts and installing them on your vehicle, by all means contact YourMechanic and a certified mechanic will work with you on your current project. Please let us know if you have further concerns.
