The fascia, of course, lol, and the bracket I think, and headlights (because the 95-96's are shaped differently and shorter. Everything else is the same.

Oops, I was backwards about the headlights. So, here's a better and easier explanation of the headlights. The 2GB headlights are short than the 2GA headlights.

Notice how far in the 95-96's go into the 2GB bumper cover?

Notice how short the 2GB headlights are with the 2GA bumper cover?

You can still do it though, just buy a 97-99 headlight so that you can still do the 2Gb conversion.
Thank you for searching bud[sm=smiley20.gif]
