Do 147/156 share the same shock absorber struts?

Hi guys as questioned above, my rear shocks have had it, i'm comparing prices at the moment and want to know if it's possible to install the struts off a 156 onto my 147. I've searched for the question already but I didn't find a clear answer. Correct me if I didn't look hard enough

I don't know for sure, but I asked a guy selling absorbers for the 156 wagon if they will fit on a 147 and he said they wouldn't, but wait for someone who knows for sure. Why can't you just buy used ones for the 147? (Assuming you're buying used). If not, disregard the question. :P

The suspension layout is the same for all 156/147/GT with the exception of the Q4
So they will fit.
At factory fit level, there are so many different spring & damper rates (ie having AC means different OEM springs), that comparing one to another is close to impossible.

So they'll fit. Are they the best option? Maybe, maybe not.

I was comparing prices, and full sets were a bit cheaper for the 156. I ended up buying a pair of 147 rears new. I feel like results are inconclusive on this question
