Hello, I'm aware that we have the KYB struts available. But I'm interested in the Koni Adjustable struts. Unfortunately for Geo they only have the Tracker, however under the Suzuki category there is Swift, and Cultus for the same year as my Metro. I'm curious if their struts will fit on a Metro.

Yes they are same car with very few differences. But watch the listings some time they will list as fitting a 1995 the same as a 1994 they are not the same.

I just installed complete suspension from 89-94 Metro into my '95 Metro . It bolts right in and drops the car about 3/4-1". Everything is the same except brake line mount in the back of the strut. 89-94 is little lower then 95-up but line still clips in . You can do the opposite swap if you want to lift your Metro for approximately same amount. This of course applies to Swifts since they are the same car except Swift GTi springs are about 10mm shorter and .45mm thicker (higher spring rate) then Metro springs
