    No, there are actually two types. Someone out there correct me if I'm wrong but I think they changed in '88 or something.

    bolted an 90 on my 88 and I have seen many 78 ish ones that look Identical. Also keep in mind when buying and afte market such as JC whitney they are listed for the typical time frame, 73-91

    You call that dirty!?
