98-00 Leaf springs are identical right?

A buddy of mine is lifting his 2wd Ranger, going with springs, and AAL's (maybe bigger blocks in the rear too, depending on how it looks)

When I went to summit for the AAL's it says they fit up to 97, and from 99 on, I assume they are all the same correct? I dont want to have him order the wrong thing

his springs are 2.5" wide. just get an AAL that is 2.5" wide and you will be fine.

also note that the fabtech kit might come with AALs i think it does actually
