    Can the new edge windshields be installed in a 1994? Seems like they would be the same, except for the blue tint vs. running horse at the top.

    Ive never had to replace my winshield so Im not 100 percent but Im willing to bet theyre the same other than the differences that you pointed out. I mean the cars are practically the same except for small exterior styling but are dimensionally the same practically.

    I would not count on it myself but you could call a local windshield repair place and ask them what year the windshields run through when they order them. I mean if they have one windshield from 79-2004 it might be possible but I think the sn has more of a curve to it.

    I would imagine they're the same. Always assumed that structurally the roofs were identical between the two since everything else is interchaneable from the body line up.

    Oh ya I see 94-99 and 00-04 are grouped together. Strange that 99 is in the old group

    Tis but a big company like that wouldnt make a boo boo or else someone would catch on quickly. And Im sure the grouping is just for cosmetic reasons not because theyre different.
