Koni orange rear shocks

Hi all, we started installing the suspension yesterday. The springs, relo brackets, LCA's, UCA and mount went on without any problems. When we went for the rear shocks there weren't any nuts and/or washers and bushings. I did a search here but didn't find anything relevant. Both my neighbor and I have installed shocks in the past and these are the first set we see that don't come with them. If we try to use the stuff from the stock shocks we'll hardly have any thread to install the top nut.

Has anybody had this happen to you?

BTW, it's an '11 GT and the shocks have 05-12 stamped on them. I sent an inquiry to KONI Market, but with Memorial Day, I don't expect an answer until Tue at the earliest. Thanks guys.

I reused the stock bushings and nuts myself. Had no adverse effect.

That's odd, as Koni includes new washers, bushings and nuts with their yellow adjustable shocks, which I installed two weeks ago.

Yup. The yellows have a different thread pattern then the stockers so they come with new everything. The str.ts have the same thread pattern, and as nosympathy did, i reused mine stock stuff as well. Just make sure not to over tighten them as i did lol. Should just be wrist tight.
