I think it's highly unlikely that you'd end up w/ a mismatched set, possible, but not probable

if you have USDM springs f/r then the GR2's would work- you will have to get the correct spacer and 04+ tops to complete the swap- the GR2's I'm pretty sure are only offered in a 02/03 config (if they are offered in 04+ then you won't need the spacer)

you'll also want a pair of 04+ rear bump stops- they differ from the 02/03 ones- you can get these at your dealer

if it was me and my struts were toast (at 135k I can guarantee you your struts are toast ) I'd opt for the Koni inserts- much better damping and adjustable. you have a set of struts that instead of going in the garbage can be freshened w/ new inserts- get the old ones sandblasted and re-paint or powder coat them so they look new

the Koni install is pretty straightforward- there is a good step by step in the stickies (w/ photos)

having said that, for a daily driver the GR2's would certainly suffice
