Default Suspension difference question

I've searched here in Workshop and Performance. Tried Google. Can't find what I'm looking for.

My question is, what is the difference between the stock suspensions of '99-'01 and '02-on? Springs/shocks/struts.

Are the rears the same or different?

Are the fronts the same or different?

Different mounting points? Or? Can someone specify?

Really appreciate this, thanks guys.

Default I know the fronts are different

The mounting point for the sway bar end link on the strut body is different, and I am confident the front hub mounting at the lower end of the strut is different too.

I don't know about the rears.

Vaguely remember something about the front hub.

Appreciate it, thanks.
