anyway is it the same part for all the e-series boxcar (ea-ed) instrument clusters? (standard,sport,hi-series)

ill put up some pics.
thanks

anyone whos changed their cluster should know
so i can just pick one up from the local wrecers rather than $50 from ford

for anyone who is interested. they are different
i got one from a wreckers took it home and it was slightly diff
so i took it back and got it replaced with one that fits. its kinda s**t and has scratches, but it came with a stuffed high series dash that ive been playing around with (for a mod to change the lcd colour).

so its kinda s**t but i saved $24 and didnt have to give the evil new oak dealership any of my money

they are not all the same. I mad that same mistake by assuming that. On one of the ones i got, the low series cluster it has three plastic tabs on the bottom just like the one in your picture. My mid series cluster had four tabs
