    SX4 Hatch and Sedan compatibility

    As title says. My SX4 Hatch body has about 177k miles. As one would imagine, this would take a toll on suspension parts over time. I recently purchased another SX4 Sport Sedan with about 60k miles. Car drives very solid suspension wise but has terrible engine knock. Basically purchased for parts. Are the suspension components interchangeable between the hatch and sedan? Example: Tie Rods, Struts ( springs may have a different sprint rate I assume ), etc.
    Vehicles:
    2006 Mitsubishi Evolution IX MR
    2007 Suzuki SX4

    Unless someone else knows a better way, I'd say your best bet is to try a little research on Rock Auto. From my experience selling parts for both autozone and advance, vehicles which have a hatch/sedan/wagon variant will usually specify in the notes if it is a trim specific part. Normally if there is nothing in the notes for the part, it will work on the other trims. However, its not a standard practice so sometimes it's ultimately trial and error.

    As for personal experience with coil springs, typically fronts differ between a/c equipped and non-ac/c equipped, and most likely will differ between the trims as naturally the weight and balance is different. But it might not differ also!

    Sorry if that's not much help but hopefully it'll give you a start.
