Default Insight Shocks?

I know the Gen 2 uses a lot of 09 Fit suspension parts... Does this mean I can find some 09 Fit rear shocks and put them in my Gen 2? Looking to stiffen things up with the amount of weight that I carry in the back.

Thanks

I went with civic rear shocks. For more load capacity you might want to look at the little red air bladder that goes inside the coil spring and you preinflate for better load handling.

I believe 2010. I just searched on rockauto for something similar to what the insight has. Seems our shocks have the widest range of travel than anything honda makes.
