Default NB axle and hub assembly on my 1997?

Hey guys,
My wheel bearing is going out on my passenger rear. To my delight, the PO decided to weld the axle right to the hub. From what I have found the NB knuckle should match up to my NA?
I found a guy parting out a 2003 LS and he's willing to ship me everything from the axle to rotor for just $100. Thought this would be a good solution, so I can try and salvage the knuckle from my current setup after the swap. I could also be very wrong. Would appreciate any insight into it. Thanks in advance.

I feel like 1 out of 100 people viewing must have some insight? I've been searching forever without any definitive answers

The NB have 5mm wider track per side in the uprights, that's the only difference IIRC.

That is pretty much what I have found but couldn't really tell from anyone' wording if they were infact using stock NA upper and lower control arms. If the 5mm track is really the only difference, is it alright to just use a NB upright on just one side? Should I get bot sides from the seller if possible?

No one replied because your question can easily be answered with a Google search.

NB uprights are 5mm wider. If you want uneven track width you only need one. If you want your **** to not suck learn to use Google and get both NB uprights.
