Rear Struts for 2012 LTz

4254 4
Hi,

I am looking to see if anybody could help me find a pair of replacement rear struts for a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTz. About a month ago I bought a front complete strut assembly kit from CARID.com (UNITY® 2-11881-11882-001). I was skeptical about getting these struts due to the lack of information on the website regarding whether or not it contained the sport suspension. After contacting CarID and the manufacturer I confirmed that it did contained the sport suspension (Well that's what I was told). Now I am looking to replace my rear struts, but cannot seem to find any with the sport suspension, the only one I found was the Bilstein B8, but everywhere I check it says "Unavailable until further notice". I am mainly looking for a replacement and not a huge upgrade, something of OEM quality.

Also, does anybody know the difference between the standard and sport suspension? Why do I necessarily need to get the struts with the sport suspension?

I apologize if I'm throwing a lot in here, is just I've really had difficulties finding the replacements to those specifications.

Thank you in advance.
