View Full Version : getting a good deal on kyb gr2's, need some quick advice

Up until recently I was under the impression that the struts from a 6th gen could bolt up in a 5th gen, but now I hear differently. My question is: is that statement true for all struts, factory and aftermarket.

The reason I ask is because I have a guy who is willing to sell me a set of gr2's and spare cartridges for 85 bucks. The only hitch is that they are for his 96 gt, and i want to use them in my 91 gt.

So the basic question is, will kyb gr2's for a 6th gen bolt up to my 5th gen. Im gonna do aftermarket springs if they do...

Thanks in advance,

I can tell you that KYB lists completely different part numbers for the 5th and 6th gen. So I would venture to say that they will not work.

Yeah I was aware of that, but at one point in time there was a member on here trying to sell a kyb/eibach setup for a 6th gen and there was discussion in the thread that they would work on a 5th gen but the posting has since been removed...

They will work in the rear, but not in the front.
