Can you?  Yes....would I do it or reccomend it?  No....
As you prolly know the sport springs lower the car about an 1"...this affects the 
travel of the strut shaft.  I am pretty certain the struts between the two models 
is different.  You may very well drive w/ this combination for 50k...but why take 
things apart 2x... do it once, and do it right w/ a set of Bilstien Sports...it 
will make a HUGE difference in handling.  Oem struts seem to show signs of dieing 
around 100k.
