Does any one know if the 2001 Gen 2 F2 Evo front struts will fit a 1998 Gen 1 F2.

I'm not aware the gen 2 came in F2 or F2 Evo versions..

imaginary struts will not fit a non imaganary car.

:yeahthat ;)

IIRC, the EVO and gen1 SE upto '99 is the same - the rear setup underwent revision from '99 onwards. I guess late model gen1's will have the same suspension spec and setup as early gen2's, if thats any help...

More EVO info here, where parts are not listed then they are common to both :thumbup

not sure if the f2 was lower than standard? if so it's possible the strut will fit, but you need your old spring.

(basically I'm not sure.)

I ended up getting a replacement strut a while ago from a Gen2 and it was the same as the F2 Evo.

£25 + delivery, how desperate are you for one? mine will be getting removed hopefully in the next few weeks and i was thinking about selling all 4 for £40/50 or so
