Would stock springs fit on KYB GR2 gas shocks?

Hello there, I managed to find out that a previous owner of my car installed KYB GR2 gas shocks and I guess he put lowering springs on them. Well my area is very bumpy, what with speed bumps everywhere you look and my driveway and all, so i want to raise my car up a little. I found a set of stock springs on ebay, but I was just curious if they would fit normally on those shocks that are in there.

Here's a pic of the suspension, sorry for it being dirty, i couldnt manage to get in there an clean it up a bit.

Do you have a base? The stock springs will physically fit your GR2's may have been blown out by the other springs. The symptoms of blown shocks are body movement when driving hard and car and still being able to feel the bump when you're 5 yards past it.

hes not asking if his struts are blown he wants to know if stock springs will fit his KYB GR2's and the answer is yes every product of KYB is built to meet OEM specs

Well I a buddy of mine just bought kyb struts for his sh and I'm having trouble putting the fronts on. It seems like the sh model springs are too long and when I set it on the strut it seats crooked... Are u getting base model springs or sh? I wondering if base model will fit, since kyb say they don't make struts for the sh model.

Re: Would stock springs fit on KYB GR2 gas shocks?

i have a 97 sh that i bought in april, and i had to buy new shocks mine were squirting out hydraulic fluid. I looked and looked and could not find any aftermarket shocks that fit an sh. The sh has heavier suspension parts. Soo i had to go to the stealership and get raped. 700$ later i have 4 new shocks . They ride pretty good but im not that impressed for the price.
Wish i could have used the kyb gr2but i read that they wouldnt work.
Good luck
