Wouldn't it make more sense to ask your "mechanic" father instead of anonymous people from online?

And there are a few other minute cosmetic differences.

I think somebody got caught in a fib. I also think someone full of sh*t. Please whine at your convenience.

the rear bumper on the 95-96 eclipses is a little diffrent than on the 97-99, the 97-99 have circle reverse lights instead, http://www.mnautorecycling.com/mitsu.../04m006-dr.jpg it may be hard to see, but thats what the 97-99 back bumper looks like
