Not without having major modifications made i.E. Welding components in, removing components. Etc.

A strut and shocks are not interchangable. If you put a simple coil-over-shox in place of strut, you won't be able to steer the vehicle and if you do otherwise, the directional stability will be lost. A strut is usually used in front suspension and a coil-over-shox is generally a part of rear suspension.

Vehicle riding rough? Need instructions on replacing shocks and struts? Just let me know.
