SVT Transmission completely screwed...

I swear just one thing after another..So since we bought this car we have not had a single issues with the trans..Clutch doesn't slip, doesn't grind going into gear..Nothing..Other day my husband was sitting outside waiting for me to come out of the grocery store with the car off..I come out..He starts the car looks at me and says "Its stuck in 4th gear...Won't come out". My first assumption was that he was joking around but nooo it had to be true..He ended up driving it in 4th gear all the way to the house..So I'm sure the clutch is toast now too.

Anyhow, tore everything out to get a good look at the shift cables on the trans. They are on there fine...Now, the top shift tower on the trans moves fine. But the bottom one is just frozen stuck..Will not move at all period. The shifter in the car will only move up and down and won't go side to side at all.

Needless to say we've assumed the worst...But any other tips or suggestions would be appreciated..But from what we have been told its time to start hunting for a new transmission or looking into getting this one rebuilt. Just crazy how something like this can just come out of no where!?
