I *Think* that all Shimano 8-9-10 speed freewheel bodies are the same, so the answer should be yes.

yep, pretty sure it will be fine. you might not need a spacer at the back, too.

i put a 9spd cassette on in place of an 8spd earlier in the year and had to very little mandering (i think even the limit stops were spot on).
