You mean strut mount? if yes, then you can use the OEM or just replace with new ones. They're about $40 each from any parts store. Since the car will be apart anyway, why not use new parts? just my own opinion.

Yeh you can go with stock. I had eibach springs with stocks, and ride was ok, but once i put the GR2's on there the bumps was not so bad. Trust mi when mi tell you this, wait and save up for some GR's. They are not that expensive neither.

Yes you can re-use the Strut Boot, Pillow mount OEM ,other cars (like hondas) cut the bump stops esp if they are using coilover sleeves.

you should have no issues.

And as pointed out, if your taking it to a shop to do this, you might want to consider purchasing a set of new struts, depending on the mileage of your car, and your location in NY which I heard some areas of the roads is horriable.

You may want to consider the struts too so that you can save money when installing the struts and springs at the shop.

If your DIY then your only wasting your on personal time to do this.

rememeber when you change the stance height , the OEM struts work just as twice over bumps which will cause the longetivy of the struts to decrease.

Strut boots have nothing to do with the springs.

Are you talking the strut boots, or the struts themselves?
