partly right about replacement. Here is a breakdown:
92-95 SE/SLE bumpers will work on any 92-95. They have a dip in the center because they had a longer grille. With an SSE/i grille, there will be a bigger gap in the center. Going the other way, you will have a fitment issue with a 92-95 Grille and a 92-95 SSE/i front bumper. 92-95 fenders were physically the same size, but all SSE/i and some SLE'*, have an extra hole near the door for the lower part of the molding.
The front ends will also physically swap from 92-95 and 96-99, but you need the bumper, fenders, grille, and inner bumpers. The lines of the car probably won't line up. The hood should be the same 92-99.
I'd be interested in seeing pictures of your car there DC_66Canada
