e90/e92/e93 spring compatibility

Does anyone know if springs are cross compatible across all e9x platforms? I noticed that eibach has a different part number for e93s, and actually is a lower drop up front 1.0" vs 0.8". I wonder if they use different spring rates for the weight difference. Anyone know if you can use e93 springs on a e92 and vice versa?

e90/e92 are the same. I wouldn't think e93 would run the identical spring ideally. Stick with the vert springs...

I ask mainly out of curiosity. I would rather have the lower, more even drop anyhow. It might be a consideration though for the e90/e92 crowd if they could use the lower springs.
