    Yes they do. Coupe/Cabby are the same for pretty much everything.

    Yes and No

    Yes they will fit
    No they are not the same as cabby springs are designed for a heavier car. Coupe springs will probably be a lower drop on a cabby and wear out your shocks quicker (if still standard)

    Maybe yes, maybe no. Depends on road type, how many miles you drive etc.

    For the price of a set of springs you would be stupid IMO to not just get new ones. Will handle better as well, as coupe springs haven't been designed to handle the weight of a cabby.
