Anybody know if the KYB GR-2 shocks from a 4th gen will work on a 5th gen? (namely from a 4g GT to a 5g GTS).

I thought they needed some sort of modification to work? kybonline.com shows different part numbers for the 2 cars.

Yes, they will fit. They are physically the same, the difference is in the damping rate. The GTS is heavier and has slightly stiffer springs, so the struts are valved differently. Using GTS struts in a GT/ST will make it a bit stiffer, although you may never notice the difference.
