I need more info on this for sure.
I would need to see the bare tops of the strut pistons to know for sure. I can't see many pics at work either.

If they look like an 02 - 03 strut with the shoulder on top, then yes. If they look like a GC or 04 - 07 strut, then no.


It appears to me from your picture above comparing the "GC8" strut to the "FXT" strut, that they are 04 - 07 style pistons, so you should not need the TiC strut top spacer to run the GC rear spring perch and top. IMHO...

I would use the washer that you normally get with Group-N tops under that top nut that holds everything together...
