COMPATABILITY OF PARTS FROM AND 525

1991 BMW 520

Suspension problem
1991 BMW 520 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150k miles

I am serving in the USAF over in germany and I have bought a 1991 520 BMW and one of the front shocks is ruined. The parts over here run about 200 euro which is about $260.00
I am trying to get parts from the states but of course the closet model in the states is a 525. So my question is are the shocks from the 525 compatable with the 520 model?

thankyou,

They should be similar enough to work, yes. Be sure it is from the same year car.
