If yer frame runs on 1 1/8 inch heattube u can probrably use the other fork if they are of same size. Otherwise juz pop by any bike shop and get new forks. forks dun cost much unless u'r gonna buy something branded.
Also make sure yer fork dropouts are of the same size. its either the 10mm or 14mm type. if the other's too big u can get adapters frm most bike shops. if its too small hard luck. the cheapest way is to grind yer axles which are a hell to do if u don't know how.
if u ned anymore help feel free to msg me. :p

YOUR HEAD TUBE MUST BE THE SAME SIZE AS YOUR FORK WEATHER IT IS 1" OR 1 1/8 AND THEN IT WILL WORK THE EASIEST WAY TO FIGURE IT OUT IS JUST PUT THE FORK IN THE HEAD TUBE. OH AND ANOTHER THING TO CONSIDER IS IF THE THE HEAD TUBE IS THREADED OR NOT.

hey swirly the headtube is never treaded on a bike. if it was then u would be loosening and tightening your headset every time u move the bars. the fork is what is treaded and the compression cup for the upper headset.
