I have an 8 speed bike with a Sora rear mech that needs replacing. Can I use any Shimano road rear mech (i.e a 105) or are they 8 or 9 speed specific?

My understanding is that all mechs are all speed.

Any of the 9 speed shimano will work.There are some compatibility issues with pre 9 speed DA rear derailers and non DA shifters.
