Question Accord 94-97 struts in 3.2

Hi everyone!

My name is Carlos and I have got a 98 TL 3.2 . I need to remplace the struts of my Tl. In my country i can't import the correct struts for my Tl, so... I need to improvise.
I know, the rear suspensión is the SAME of the Accord 94 so I want remplace the struts of my TL with the Accord struts and TL OEM springs. They will fit?
But... in front, I don't know if the struts of the Accord 94 can fit with the TL OEM springs... so...
Anybody knows if the Accord 94-97 (Can be for the V6 or the 4Cyl) struts can fit in the 3.2 tl with OEM springs?

Thanks!

Hey Carlos, car-part.com, is a modestly good resource, when checking parts compatibility, across different product lines. According to them, the 98 TL 3.2, and the 94-97 Honda Accord struts, do not interchange. This doesn't necessarily mean, they wont work, if the springs are changed out, it just means, they don;t recognize it as a recommended fit!

Frank! thank you for your knowledge! me too has check parts compatibility in rockauto.com, and others sites. (At KYB catalogo too)
The front struts there are a different shape but the rear struts are the same... BUT, technically, there aren't the same for a compressed length, extended length and stroke length (0.01 and 0.10 for difference between Accord struts and TL struts)
That's why it's is my next question.

I can use the rear struts of the Accord in the TL with the OEM TL springs?
