Would it have something to do with the steering shaft extension since the dash is different?

I doubt it to, it was just a random "throwing out an idea" guess that the dash would cause it to be a different length for some reason.

also the front bumper bracket on the 93-94 looks like crap and it notes it only raises it 2-1/2 inches instead of 3" what crap is this...

looks like i will order the 95-97 push comes to shove i can buy 12x180 bolts at the fastener store...
