    Are you meaning are the fronts of the 4wd and fwd the same? I believe so. Same on the Passat B5 too.

    Just to clarify Marks explanation:

    The front end is the same, obviously there will be spring and shock differences depending on the engines etc but we have S4 front shocks on our A4 and the springs would swap over too.

    The rear end is different though, as the Quattro has double wishbone rear suspension and the FWD cars have a torsion beam, so none of it would swap over.
