    I've got a chance to pick up a pair of rear Bilstein 5125 shocks for a really good price, they are off a first gen... Will they work on my second gen? The guy selling them said something about changing the bushing from a 1/2 to a 3/4 inch... Any help is appreciated.

    Aren't the top mounts different between the generation?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Well they will work with a adapter on the top and you might need to change the bushings. But after all that you might be better off buying new ones unless your getting these really cheap.
