    Yes. But i can email them And Ask. I want to change to gas insted of oil spring also. So the best Would be to find a adjustable set.. But Its not easy.

    Yes they "fit" all Nitros. But that does not mean they have a heavier version for the CRD. Which means they will start to sag in short order.
    The issue is with the front weight, not the rear.

    Is the 2.8 heavier than the gasoline engine?

    Yes. Don't know why but the CRD front springs are heavier rated then the petrol springs.
