Default Strut Replacement with Aftermarket/other OEM part

I'm curious guys, has anyone swapped these insight struts for ones from another car? The EP3 struts & RSX struts both look similar

There are after market struts for the G1 that work just fine.

I think OP is talking about struts as in front suspension shock absorbers.

There's an old thread somewhere around here where someone swapped in one of the struts you mentioned. I think it took some customization like shortening an arm or something.

^ Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. I was thinking someone around here tried the RSXs...

Here's one thread: https://www.insightcentral.net/forum...s-insight.html
