Struts (all 4), springs (all 4) and both swaybars. It'* a total and complete package.

In addition, there is a slight ride height difference (at least with the 92-99) resulting from the items I mentioned.

yes, they mount the same, springs are the same. the sway bar is a bigger diameter, so the bushings are different than yours.

yes, he was wondering if the dimensions of the struts, springs, etc were the same. That is why I said they were the same, with the exception of the sway bars.
