Just found out prices for the parts I'll be needing in the near future, one of them being shocks and wow. 270 usd for 1 shock? That's over the top. Looked in to inserts a while back, but there are non specifically for the swift, so I was wondering what inserts would fit in a swift strut? Or what shocks could be adapted, I see a large market for civic shocks locally and they're pretty cheap, even coilovers.

Koni sport is the only insert that I know of, thats a 'cut a strut insert', everything else is just a replacement macpherson strut, very little extra material required to make a complete strut, KYB excel gas and Monroe both do good quality mono-tubes struts.

Not sure if EP82 or EP91 Toyota starlets are common over there but their struts are almost the same, just a few mm longer, Mazda 323 (BG) and Daihatsu Charades front struts are also very close.
