That would be something IF it were true....and it could be....but not likely....the VW is somewhat smaller and lighter....

You can install whatever you want with an angle grinder, welder and patience. You wont just be able to drop shock inserts from a VW in there. I believe what we_sleigh did was to cut off the top of the strut/knuckle assembly and weld a custom coilover in there which used VW inserts (since they have many aftermarket coilover solutions and we have only 1) to the original Saab hub/lower knuckle assembly.
