    No, they're well different - anything else will fit though, but I'd recommend you avoid any shocks from any Sport/M-Sport cars - too stiff for normal use.

    Believe the fronts are different - larger diameter at the bottom - but I'm guessing you're gonna find out for yourself

    If the suspension isn't set up for the much firmer shocks then you could have problems, they may physically fit but bear in mind it's the shocks that keep the tyres on the road. You may not know there's a problem until it floats across the road on a bend.

    its the springs that keep the tyre on the road, the shock just smoothen the compression of the springs. the only difference they will make is the ride quality of your car, i.e soft, hard etc
