Sedan and wagon exhaust systems the same?

Just wondering if I can get a complete exhaust system from a 90-92 sedan and put it on my 91 wagon?
Same length and hangers the same?
Up to what year is it a clean swap for my 91 NA?

Thanks

Update

I don't know whether I screwed up my HLA's or not, but after a trip on the freeway, there is no more clicking sound. Guess I didn't prime them good enough and thus they all were clicking.
I will know within 2000miles if the sound comes back again.
Comments still welcome!

did I break (collapse) my HLA's

Hey, It's been a while since I read the threads on bleeding HLA's. Yesterday I finally had enough of the loud ticking at start up until the engine warmed up. So I took the passenger rockerarm off and proceeded to pull the HLA's via pliers over a towel. I remembered you had to pump the HLA by hand to...

Do I have to remove the exhaust to replace a driveshaft?
The junker's exhaust system was already removed, made it nice and easy. Where are the best placed to dismantle the exhaust system, if I even have to remove it?

Lifters

I took off the valve cover and rockerarm assembly on a 92+ wagon, and was unable to find the lifters, or what I should look for.
I saw the valves sticking out through their springs, but where are the lfiters?

I tried getting the socket onto the two nuts and bolts attaching the strut to the hub, but the CV was in the way of the nuts, and there is not much sense in loosening the bolts, there isn't much room to manuver a breakerbar... I don't think I mentioned the brake line. So if I want to take the whole ...

removing rear struts

I went to the junkyard to pick up a driveshaft and possibly struts from a 92+ AWD wagon, forgot the 34 socket though and couldn't get to the struts otherwise. Is that correct - I have to remove the axle nut and slide the axle out of the hub, in order to take the struts off?! Also is it necessary to ...

Thanks guys, that saved me a trip to the yonke! So I can hear a loud vibration (a mild continuous clunking) when I let off of the gas and when I apply the brakes in second to the point of getting close to stalling. Right now I can move the driveshaft up and down at the center bearing, about half an ...

Can you turn your driveshaft when parked in neutral? I can turn the shaft about half an inch around, that's when it stops due to the rear diff. being locked by the wheels on the ground. I assume the driveshaft is supposed to be able to move up and down a little in the middle where the "bearing" is, ...

No no, there is a sedan at a yonke near me in SoCal.
Would this driveshaft (91 L AWD Automatic sedan) be compatible with my 91 L AWD Manual wagon?

The symptom: dull clunk or thunk noises from the rear suspension while driving over surface irregularities at low speed. The noise can also be replicated when the car is sitting still by bouncing on the bumper. At speeds over 20mph or so there is no noise. I have the same symptom on my 91 wagon. By...

After pushing the cruise control button, you have to engage the cc by pushing down on a little lever on the right back side of the steering wheel. When the steering wheel is straight, the lever is between the wheel and the windshield wiper lever. I believe you have to push down on the lever to engag...
