[A4] Strut vs. Cartridge Replacement Options

The local tire store told me that strut cartridges are only available for B5
cars with sport suspensions.  And, since I don't have the sport suspension,
I have to replace the complete strut assemblies.  Does that sound right?  If
so, does anyone have a good source of sport struts that I can use inserts

Finally, might I risk damaging standard struts if I installed OEM sport
springs on them, by bottoming-out the struts?

Thanks for your patience.  :-)
