does a 95 Taurus and it's wagon counterpart have the same suspension?

specifically, would lowering springs for a 95 Taurus wagon work on a 95 Taurus sedan?

I just picked up a Taurus as a beater and I'm wanting to wrench on her this weekend. Found some lowering springs for 40 bucks on ebay, but the listing says they're for a wagon

Sedans and wagons have the same front suspension but different rear suspension.

^Yep.

Front suspension is the same but the rear is completely different.

At any rate, I'd be very weary of $40 eBay springs. Items that greatly impact the safety of your vehicle probably aren't a place you want to cheap out. There's no shortage of reports and pictures of cheap, Chinese lowering springs that have failed catastrophically. I've seen plenty of them myself.
