Physical difference between Xdrive and RWD suspension?

Sorry if this has been discussed before...
but it there a physical difference between the two?

Just want to know if i can buy a used rwd suspension kit and install it on an xdrive physically.

Im assuming the rear is the exact same (mount position spring rate and what not)

but is there a difference in the front?
maybe the suspension in the RWD versions get in the way of the CV joint for the front or something?
can someone confirm?

thanks

Nope, from what I understand, the suspension on any xdrive 328i ( also 335xi I think) is basic, the same they install on non-sport xdrive vehicles. I have a 328xi with the m sport pack and I just realized this . Anyway, look into Dinan springs, they drop the car slightly but the overall feedback from other members is very positive.
