The ones I have are the KYB Gas-a-just KG4524 (front) which I like and the KG5517 (rear) which I did not particularly like. The ones on ebay are the 343219 which I believe are the non-gas (oil) units for the same applications, so, yes, they will fit. Interestingly the front shock (KG4542) is listed for EVERY 1956-1978 Saab (That's right, 93,93B,95,96,97, and 99) and 1979-1980 99 as well. I am comfortable recommending using those for the front.
I don't think you can use the 900 control arms - for the 900 the wheelbase of the car was lengthened and I believe that changes were made to the front suspension geometry. Also, I am pretty sure the top end of the shock (to the body) on the 900 is a stud mount vs. the ring mount on the 99.
Very nice luck on the rebuilt turbocharger - can you get another one like that? :-)
