They should be the same size but i would buy the equipment first then drill the holes.

Takes a 1" hole, but the shanks are closer to 7/8" When you order the shanks, measure the wall thickness and add 1-1.5" to allow for fittings.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
