Default 2002 front suspension on 1997 questions

since my entire front end is off my car and i need a new rack i have been looking for a budget fix to my problems. i found a 2002 gt shell with 45k that was rearended, for dirt cheap. it has complete a arms, spndles, struts, brakes, drilled/slotted rotors, and brand new steering rack. is there and reason that i couldnt bolt all this onto my 97 gt? thanks,

also has anyone done a fox strut conversion when lowering a sn95?

Only thing questionable may be the a-arms. I think they may be longer

If worse come to worse just reuse your control arms and replace all the rest with the parts from the 2002. as far as the strut conversion to a fox strut, I don't think there is anything to convert, I think it is just bolt on.

By the way, is your car going to be lowered or factory right height? the Fox strut I believe is really if you are lowering your car do too the shorter struck body on the Fox strut. this gives you a strut that will be more in its optimal compression range.
