transferable shocks?

just wondering koni yellow shocks coming from a 4th gen will be able to fit on a 5th gen without any problems... i tried using the search button but couldnt find anything and plus I'm in a rush so dont get mad at me ...also, do you guys think paying $275 for 2 koni yellow shocks (front) with about 45k miles on it is a steal? what if it were all 4 shocks?

thanks

Re: transferable shocks?

No its not a steal, why not get some decent KYB s all four for just under $400

Have you ever seen what 45K miles does to a pair of struts, My bet they aren't that yellow anymore.

I'm not sure on the fittment issue either, but paying that much I would be sure it fits first, also I would advize you not to rush as you'll kick yourself in the rear once you find something better for even less.

Re: transferable shocks?

Yes they are interchangable. Only the spring rates are diferent due to the fifth gen's weight gaining problem.
