2014 Mustang GT Shocks/Struts on 2006 V6

I was given a set of barely used shocks and struts from a 2014 GT. Will these fit on my 2006 V6?

Nope. The front struts and springs are engineered to hold up a V8. Even if the bolt holes line up, the front suspension will be all wrong because the heavier springs will hold the front up too high.

Could I potentially swap the old springs onto the new struts?

If this swap hasn't been done yet. I put Shelby struts on our V6 with the stock springs and they worked fine. Replace the rubber isolaters though.
