Default Will a regular 94 se suspension fit my 97 sse?

I have a 97 SSE w/ air assted strut sys. My pump went out a few months ago and I am wanting to put 2" drop springs in. My friend has a 94 wrecked (front) se not with air suspension. Can I bolt it up or not? It can be done either way, but i want to do this without cutting. Maybe I need to measure various rear end parts. An air ride kit wont work with out removing the front and rear and allot of cutting! Need some ideas here?! ...and by the way the 94 is forsale! http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20652

You'll have to measure your 97...
But when it quits rainin I'll grab some measurements off the 94 for ya.

BTW, I think they're the same, the sway bars are at least....
