    They'll physically fit but the axle weights will be wrong and cause potentialy alot of damage to your running gear.

    You'd need to know the axle weights off both cars to be 100%

    theres a sticker on the drivers door shut that shows the chassis no the paint code and the axle weights - they both need to be the same from both cars to be safe - i've stopped 4 members buying my springs and shocks as i dont want them buying the wrong ones and looking like a chelsea tractor
