It's totally different configuration.
If you want to make an upgade you need to replace:
1. Shock absorbers.
3. Upper bearings of McPherson.
4. May be rods and may be not.
To say something definitely we need VIN of your car and a VIN of B9 with high suspension.
Try Bilstein shocks. I fitted a set (bought from Eurocarparts) to my '05 1.6i Forte a year ago and they really make a difference when you have a load up. The empty ride can be a bit harsh but otherwise they are fine. The other mod I made was buying 195/65x15 Michelin Energy tyres rather than the factory 185/65x15s - it's a tight fit at the back but they just clear everything, are cheaper and have a higher load rating.
