All passive crossover components have flaws such as series resistance. A well designed xover incorporates these flaws into the design. So for example, by exchanging coils with 'better' ones because they are wound with thicker wire, you may actually diminish the alignment of the xover. I would be careful in implementing your plan without reasonable measuring capabilities.
