I got aftermarke gen 2 uppers for a 96. They bolted up, but you need longer bolts and need to fill it with 1/8-1/4 of an inch or so of alignment shims. Obviously, alignment needed.

Ive heard of reports of the bushing bolts coming loose without lock tight. The ball joints in the arms were junk. I got half an inch play in one after 3k miles and had to buy premium replacements. But with $60 for both arms on eBay and $40 for ball joints, its still a deal.
