    The brakes will fit (if you wanna do a 308mm big brake conversion)
    The springs and shocks 'will fit', but because the axle weights on a coupe are different then the cars handling/ride height will be out (you'll probably find the car looks like a 4x4).

    TBH they don't look like they are in that good condition either - and you don't wanna take a gamble with brakes!!
