Will WJ shocks fit a ZJ?

Well, I did a quick search and found very inconclusive results. I have a local guy with the Bilstein 5100 shocks and WJ budget boost for a good price and I just really want to know if the shocks fit. Ill sell the WJ pucks and buy ZJ ones but I'd like to know if the shocks will work?

I think rears will, fronts wont but I could be wrong. I haven't looked under a wj in a while.

As the guy how the fronts connect, zj's have top studs that bolt into the top of the wheel well and then loops at bottom, rear is double loops.

The mounting looks the same. Whether they are the correct length or not you'll have to compare.

I can't tell from the pic if those 2 on the right are a stud with a bolt and nut on the top or not. If so, they'd fit, question as said is length
