Unless they stealthed changed it within the last month. I wouldn't waste thousands of credits to try again.
I am dark 5, and bought some boots with a dark 3 requirement, and then equipped them on Broonmark no problem. I did the same with some gloves ages ago on my PT, giving them to Torian. So I know it works. Maybe it was a LS vendor issue, i don't know. I know class specific doesn't work though, as Torian, Blizz, and Skadge all so no thank you to my old BH armor.

Some colors of crystals used to be faction tied (LS/DS), but that changed recently. So now it is only a matter of using the one with the better, and higher value, stat.

Anything in their armor proficiency (open your skill book with P) that doesn't say "Requires Class:---". They can wear all of the tier pve/pvp gear. Any social armor sets that you meet the social level for, the only thing they can't wear are class restricted and armor that is beyond their normal type. (medium, heavy)

Companions are their own class.

Kira Carsen's class is "Kira Carsen", which is why they cant wear class specific gear.

As far as light/dark, I always presumed that they just defaulted to what your character is.. Like with lord scourge, I couldnt give his sabers red crystals because I cant use them, but was able to give him Blue ones.

She can wear anything that doesn't say "requires smuggler"

For example, my Mako has the full rakata healing set, with offhand, columi crafted implants & earpiece, and the best pistol I can find w/ rakata mods & crystal in it. She looks exactly like an Operative healer (except for the pistol).

If you can find armor on the gtn or neutral gtn that have the right look, and aren't class restricted, she can wear them.

You can't, even if you pass rep-side armors to imp. Armor model depends on the "side" of that one who wears it. And same things may look hell different on imp and rep (like, rep has medium headband thing and imp - medium full closed helmet, and it's SAME item).

And there's no way (currently) for a smuggler to have any of IA's outfits (and vice versa, and same for jedi-sith, bh-trooper). Though, some are more then welcome, some of imp "mirror" items are pretty cool.

E.g. I got offhand trooper-specific token once as no one needed it anyway, and my Corso now has his Columi shield generator. Not sure about how sets work though, afaik - they give stats but not set bonuses, and you can equip them to companions anyway.


You can also gear your companion in a PvP gear.
My Guardian didn't have any use for the constantly growing stack of Centurion commendations I kept getting, so I ended up giving Doc a full set of Smuggler PvP gear.

My Corso has the 4 set bonus, he only takes advantage of the 4 piece bonus which raises his meele, range etc defense by 2%.
