Default '97 & '98 coil springs

I was wondering if the coil springs are the same on a '97 & '98 2wd ranger... because i found some 3" drop springs and were wondering if they would work??

3" drop springs will be unalignable on a i-beam ranger anyways.

But yeah, if it says it fits 98, it won't fit 97.
