Ss to Xfe

Hey guys im new to the cobalt world...So got questions about the suspension.
I am buying a suspension from an SS the FE5 sport suspension...I was wondering if the FE5 will take the place of the FE1 xfe suspension?

Really not a big deal it was for a good price if i dont like it i can always retrofit it for the s-10 im working on...Because with a four link suspension in the s-10 i could use the shocks and springs

And the rest of the suspension like coils and such?, seems like a better deal to just buy better shocks and struts instead of parts that may not matter.
