After trying to change foward oxygen sensor four times I find out I have 1995 sensors in my 1996 truck. The connectors on the 1996 sensors for the forward and aft oxygen sensors are opposite on 1995. How many other componets on this wiring harness will be affected? a 1996 forward sensor lists for $75 while a 1995 sensor lists for $130.
