ull need the whole front clip. the lights, the hood, fenders and bumper are different after the 96-98 EJ8's.

i would get the core support too, i heard you dont have to but i did. make sure if you do swap core supports that before drilling out the 50 spot welds that you tack in like some pip from framerail to framerail to keep it square when it comes off

oh and if you do swap the core support, what i did was bolt the core support on then put the hood headlights bumper... get everything alligned, and get the gaps just right ( you might have to finess the core support alittle) once everything is good then take the hood and bumper off and weld the core support in the final position and it should look factory once everything is back on.
