yes they will. 00 or 01 have different spring perches but that is the only change i know of.

They will fit for sure.

So are you saying if they don't fit, you are gonna charge him? =P

if you both have quattro or you both have FWD then it will work.

I know for a fact, Bilstein site has different part numbers for 98.5 and up for the rear shocks (compare to 96), front appear to be the same (again, based on their part numbers)

i put my old set on a 97 and they fit just fine. his car seemed to sit higher than my 99.5 though. looked more like non-sport than sport.

Just installed a 99 sport spring+shocks on my 96... fit perfect.

*edit*
I mean... changed out all four... haha, would be retarded to have 1 corner with sport suspension and the other 3 stock... [:D]
