Rear EJ knuckle/hub assemblies interchange?

Does that mean the rear bearings and seals are all the same?

97 to 2003 drum to disc - The hub will have to come off anyway to install the disc backing plate because it has the ABS sensor
2003 to 97 - similar in reverse (will need to pull the hub to install the drum backing plate). If disc, I expect you still need to install the older backing plate, however, having no experience with that setup directly, I can't say for sure.
The 14mm backing plate bolts were on pretty tight (loctite on re-installation) I used an impact wrench on removal after I had pulled the hub out
Hub removal/reinstallation is not difficult IF you have a press.
8mm (might be 10 - I don't remember because I have a full set) flare nut wrench necessary for removal of the brake line at the wheel cylinder if drums.
