Question Will these 1st gen Xb coilovers fit my 2005 echo hatch?

I am looking at finding some coilovers and heard that 1st Gen scion Xb coilovers might fit in 2000-2005 toyota echo hatchback...

I am looking at these racelands http://www.racelandus.com/coilovers/...s-1st-gen.html


Also look--http://www.ebay.com/itm/D2-Racing-RS...-/380696034851


Has anyone ever tried Xb suspension in their echo or know if this works? I emailed raceland to ask them to see if they knew or not. But also figured i would post here

Here is the car it will be for

first gen xB suspension setup is identical to the Echo. Weight differ, so lowering height will be different than xB.

Hmm that's good to know, I might wait to see what the company says anyways and I am curious if the height would be effected in a negative way or a positive way.

Would most likely not lower the echo a substantial amount...?

If they are coilovers, isn't ride height adjustable? So it wouldn't matter about the weight of the vehicle?
