Now i havent pulled any measurments or anything but searching through the internet and looking at a friend's Tc, it looks like the front struts appear have the same bolt pattern on the bottom and the top mount as the Fiero's rear. Not sure on length or the if the mount holes and bolts are the same. But has anyone researched into this or tried?

If your buddy has one, then just ask him if you can take his wheel off and measure the strut bolts. Anyways, are they cheaper then the Fiero ones or something?

Is your friend getting coil-overs and giving you his struts?

Ended up doing some research and the actual overall length is longer/taller on the Scion. I was actually just wanting to get info just in-case of future coil-over plans or since im considering bagging my car, possible air struts for my car. Just trying to throw some ideas out there. I know theres more of an aftermarket choice out there for scions than fieros.

There's universal "air over strut" kits to fit factory 2" struts (same as you'd do coil-over conversion)

Ends up looking something like this I'd imagine.

Just to add a few key data points for anyone else who stumbles cross this thread:

Fiero strut fully extended: ~16"
Scion TC strut fully extended: ~ 20.5"

Also, the lower flange for mounting the upright on the scion has the bolt holes pretty close to the same distance from the strut tube top/bottom (not slotted for camber adjustment). The fiero one has the bottom bolt hole significantly slotted and well over 1/2"+ further from the strut body.
