Front Struts for 2011 RS sport suspension

Hi all,

I am having a hard time finding a standalone strut or complete quick strut assembly to replace my original 2011 LT RS sport front suspension. I already made the mistake of assuming the standard strut would work , ordered it and found out they are way too tall. Anyone replace these ?

Thanks,
Phil

There's all kinds of stand alone or pre assembled struts for these. Pretty sure the only difference between the standard strut vs the RS strut is it's a slightly "lower" ratioed compression. I swapped out my '15 ltz rs for kyb excel g's and vogtland springs. When you say they're too tall are you saying they won't compress enough to fit into the assembled housing(strut, spring, strut mount)?

Pretty much all part searches I have done including the attached from gm parts direct specify that the part will not work with sport suspension.

I ordered a set of eBay complete struts that were for a 1.4l LT. I put them on the car, let it off the jacks and the front of the car stood a good 2-3” taller like you would see with a leveling kit on a truck.
