was concerned they might be different lengths so they would not mate up with the mounting brackets

In that case, I don't know. However, I have seen quite a few LtWts on parabolics. Perhaps a quick call to a supplier would be best.

I'm pretty certain that, in terms of length, they are the same... So should fit.
