Some clarification.....the front strut design changed in 06. The base of the strut got fatter and the spring seat design changed for those models. As mentioned, 00-05 struts can be used on 06+ (second gens cars) with an Omni Kit by Massive. The kit is essentially a shim that fits around the base of the smaller (earlier) front strut allowing it to fit in the 06+ knuckle. You'd have to use 00-05 springs as well as the 06+ springs will not fit the earlier struts.
