If you can point us toward any parts suppliers that list the part and give a part number and possibly a picture, even if their listing says that it's not available, I'm sure that one of us can attempt to cross-reference that part number to see if it matches.

If you go here and view the suspensions chart you will see there is an export only suspension that may (or may not) be on your Neon:

It looks to be the same as the US base and Sport suspensions other than the steering ratio.
If someone like Imperial Crown can run the VIN for option codes, you should have the code to match the chart above.

They will fit - but there is a single Monroe part to cover all installations.
I suspect they will be a little more biased to a softer ride (as opposed to firm and sporty) compared to the factory original.
My friend put this level of strut on his 95 Neon Sport (using the factory springs rather than the whole strut assembly) and his car rode much softer than mine where is used the KYB brand struts.
