Is it ok to have different brand of suspension in front and stock rear? (temporary)

Is it possible to temporarily run 2 camber-adjustable coilovers in the front, and 2 stock struts in the rear with camber-adjustable lower control arms? Just for a few hundred miles to get to work, while a whole new kit makes its way here? As long as the rear ride height lines up with the front?

I don't know of any coilovers that aren't a significant drop, so you are more likely to scrape the front bumper. Also, it would probably understeer quite a bit. I guess as long as you drive like your grandma is in the car it should be fine. Why not just wait for the kit before doing anything?

Thanks, just need to get to work monday and tuesday, parts not coming in til wedsnesday. The car is really difficult and concerning to drive in its current state and its because of 1 seized coilover in the rear that can no longer be adjusted. I figure with the LCA in the rear, it won't quite be an exact stock ride height and I'll have less of a threshold to try and have the front match the rear.

It'll be totally fine. The handling will just be weird. Take it easy or better yet take it to an empty parking lot and see how it handles at the limit.

I have driven around for a month with stock fronts and slammed rear end while my fronts were being re-built and had no issues apart from a comfortable front end and lots of clearance!
