I know the strut mounts on my '97 Riviera are "unique" and that Rivieras have that annoying through-belt body mount but other than those gotchas will the cradle from a 2002 Bonneville SSEi swap into my Riviera?

Steering rack mounting is totally different so you'd have to swap in the newer style rack as well which also means you need to get the rear trans mount stuff too along with the front mount

Will a '97 Park Avenue cradle fit my '97 Riviera? A local scrap yard has a decent cradle and I want to make sure before pulling the trigger.
