If you got the brackets with the bumper, you're in luck. Take a piece of cardboard and trace the hole pattern on your old bumper mounts and re drill the sport mounts.
Don't worry about the outer brackets they were deleted on the sport.

The grille frame is different so you'll need that.

Either headlight will , sport or not, they're the same. Except for the 2000, some of them have quad headlights.

I know because mine is a '95 and there's a couple pics posted in my albums on my page.

Yep, 94-99. The difference isn't whether they will even fit or not, because either will fit. Same size and bolt pattern. The "difference" is in single bulbs or dual bulbs.
