Default Would stock NB top hats fit on NA racelands?

So today I bought racelands made for NAs but I was wondering if my NB top hats from my stock suspension could fit on it.

No.

The tophats can be modified (this is what FCM does with their NB tophat retrofit kits) but it's not a bolt-on.

Instead of modifying the NB top hats could I install the suspension anyways with the NA top hats?

Yes.

As an assembly (tophat, spring, damper), the complete coilover package is freely interchangeable between the NA and NB. The NA design will have slightly less free travel in compression, but if you're installing Ricelands, I assume you don't care about that in the first place.

Fasho? I literally have no idea what you are talking about.

really? that's like double lazy.

because you should be typing: fo sho, fo 'sho, fa sho, or fa 'sho. Removing the space between the two words is just plain offensive.
