The picture of the new shocks just looks like a different top. That should be an easy refit for the current shocks.

Will the new servo mount work on older cars or will it need a new lower deck?

According to Jilles, more grip. Aeration just refers to the style, it has no bladder and they are bled through the screw in the shock cap.

The top and bottom decks are all new. It looks like no changes to the bulkheads so they should fit straight on.
