Are 7 and 8 speeds freehub body parts interchangeable?

I have an 8 speed freehub body whose innnards are stuffed, but only have a 7 speed one to replace it. Are the innards the same for both so I could swap them out of the 7 speed into the 8 speed?

The freehub bodies differed between the slimmer 'road style' hubs versus the fat paralax hubs. These are not interchangeable as the seals do not marry up so it will depend on what 7 and 8 parts you have there.
