you would use VR-4 coilovers front and rear as the strut length (for the rear) and top hats (for the front) are specific to the Galant but you can always use Galant top hats on DSM front struts and you may be able to adjust DSM rear coilovers to the right height on a VR-4.

1G knuckles & calipers are the same as VR-4, the only difference are the hubs & rotors are 5 lug instead of 4 lug.

Specifically 1gb (93-94) front calipers are same as USDM 91-92 GVR4s, 1ga DSMs have single piston front calipers.

Zee,

1G DSMs were built on a shortened chassis of the E3x Galants, so many of their parts eill interchange with the Galants. A DSM rear subframe is the same as the Galant's but without the 4WS components bolted to it. You really don't have to change out the subframe, just to swap diffs.

If you are still running ABS, you will need to swap the ABS rings from the galant hubs onto the DSM hubs, to retain ABS, iirc. There are several how to threads on "5 lug swap".
