Exclamation definitive lower control arm question

will the early 92-96 model front lower control arms fit my 99 .I was about to purchase the NAS arm of ebay and the price is different for the late model.
I've read numerous threads about the difference being in bushing diameter
the question is will it work without hassle and be safe
thanks
Greg
numerous threads ,some dated ,but with a mix bag of answers

it rides amazing, the car handles alot better and its less clunky going over bumps but don't expect it to noticeably change the ride quality. Its more put together but its still the same quality of ride so if you have the stock suspension with 150k miles on it, its still gonna ride the same way. Depending on how badly worn your bushings are it might sit about ~1/8 of an inch higher. Also when you change out the arms make sure that all 4 wheels are on the ground before completely tightening the bolts. If you don't the car will sit noticeably higher and the bushings will wear out prematurely.
