E46 same suspension as E83?

I know that the E46 and E83 share a rear suspension and subframe design. The track on the X3 is wider because of the longer half shafts and the shocks and struts are bigger as well, but is the rear trailing arm/knuckle the same? In pictures they look the same, but I can't find any specs for a comparison. Also, the front suspension, I'm assuming is a longer coilover in the X3. But, is the pinch clamp the same diameter?

Thanks guys!
