There will be complications. Here are a couple I can think of off the top of my head; there are probably more:
98 VSS uses the rear axle sensor and adjusts the signal in the GEM or 4WABS Module.
2002 uses a transmission sensor and adjusts it in the PCM.
Wiring changes needed.
98 has no PATS components
2002 has PCM based PATS and will not start without it. Requires transceiver module, coded keys, added wiring.
If the PCM and all of the PATS parts can be transplanted from the same 2002 donor, it may be possible to avoid a tow to the dealer for PCM programming.
