Yes, but not necessarily a direct swap. If a spoiler was on either hatch, you'll likely have to fill the holes no longer needed or drill new ones depending on the hatch.
Third brake light functioning may be an issue from what I've read as well.
Also, the latch point changed throughout the years. You should be able to swap in your old parts if necessary though.

Well I have an 88 firebird and an 88 camaro so the latch assembly should be the same. I actually like the spoiler on the firebird more that's what I wanted to swap them.
