not a direct bolt in. many things were changed between the two model years. not that it cant be done.

the 98 will be a direct bolt in. 97's did have an issue with the ring land pins disintegrating between 2500 and 3500 miles. same cylinder twice or once each?

if you lost the same side twice, you may have a seal issue or a carb issue. without pictures or a better description of the damage, no way to really say.
