It seems like the rear shock/spring combo is a direct fit.
Aside from using M3 front strut mounts, would anything else be needed for the front installation?
Yes, the rear setup is a direct fit.
M3 strut mounts don't fit properly on non-M dampers. The fronts will fit with non-M strut mounts, but keep in mind that the camber and caster will change relative to the original M3 suspension. Camber plates would be a good addition.
