Question about 3rd Gen struts...

I'm reading that one of the generations has a replaceable damper cartridge..

Is that the 4th gen (97-up) or the 3.5 gen or is this an aftermarket thing?

If it is the 4th gen strut ... will the 4th gen Strut fit on a 3rd gen? What exactly is the difference? is it measurable? or is it something minor like one of the coils is wound a different way and if the entire spring strut combo is transfered then it will bolt right in?

Does anone in the Toronto Area have a stock set of 4th Gen Struts sitting around I could compare with my 3rd gen struts?
