Default 98 rear knuckle fit a 91

hi i have a bad wheel bearing on my 91 and was wondering if i swap the knuckle from a 98. will it fit? since there is one out at the local pick n pull. they both look the same im guessing it should fit since suspension is just about the same all the way up to 2005. but i just want a lil of someones input. thanks

A) if you live in america there is no such thing as a 98 miata
B) if you are refering to an NB (99-2005) I suspect they have different knuckles

ya it was at a pick n pull yard. manufacture date on the door jam was 9/98 so its a 99 if there was never a 98 made.

well i installed it everything fit i think there is a little positive camber (looks like to me) on the right rear where i installed this knuckle. maybe top link is further from the hub maybe.. but my wheel bearing noise is not gone so it must be the other side. but ill find out when i swap the other side tomorrow since i have both sides!

THANKS FOR THE INPUT GUYS!!
