Default Using 3 used and 1 new strut, bad idea?

I have an option to buy 3 used (24k miles) AGX strut/sti spring/sti tophat assemblies and a 4th AGX strut/spring combo with a brand new strut. The car was in an accident and blew out the one strut. I'm confident that everything will be perfectly functional with the parts, but I'm looking for some opinions on whether or not it will be a problem running 3 used struts and 1 brand new...

it's a pretty great deal that i'd rather not pass up, but i don't want to run into problems later on down the line.

thanks for any suggestions!

I wouldn't worry about it. Why? Because i'm doing the same thing.

[replaced strut/springs last year, then about 20k miles later one strut started to leak so i replaced it earlier this year. everythings been fine so far.]
