Default Is MK6 front struts and rear shocks the same as MK5

I have been looking but can't find a definitive answer on the MK6 model

Watching the videos of changing the front struts and rear shocks of the MK5 seems it should be the same for the MK6 (I have a 2013 Jetta TDI).

I need to replace both front and back but wanted to make sure I had the right torque settings. I haven't had any luck finding a manual or any other information regarding the MK6. Does anyone know where I can get a manual or the appropriate information so I can do this my self? The video of the MK5 is very straight forward if they are the right torque settings. I also didn't see it listed in the sticky section and I am not real good with my search ability.

fronts are the same. rears are the same, kind of but you need a spacer which is sold on ECS tuning for MK5 struts on an MK6. because the mk5 used IRS and the MK6 went back to a torsion beam rear end.

so fronts are identical. rear mk5 struts can be used but an adapter/spacer is required. and they do make mk6 specific rears as well.
