Hey I recently bought a 97 Sport (to replace my destroyed 95 RIP) and it needs the usual sway bar links and such also the rack is a little stiff when I first start to move no matter how long the car idles. I guess it might need to be replaced anyway I wanted to know if the sport part number would be different due to the thicker sway bar and springs etc. I only see one part listed for a 97 v8 and just wanted to make sure they would bolt up ok. Thanks
Well I have done more research and I think the sway bar links are the same just the bar its self is different, as far as the rack nothing seems to be different but I would still like to be sure if anybody knows. Im sure one of yall have been down this road before.
IMHO, the best place to compare part numbers and such is rockauto.com.
