Question Need help identifying these struts/springs

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a set of springs/struts and was told that they were JDM v8 STI take-offs. I was in the middle of installing my camber plates when I noticed that one of the front springs had a different paint code. Here are the paint codes and struts numbers:

Front right:
spring - two purple dots and rubber insulation on bottom coil
strut - 20310FE300 (also has FD11 and SK RH)

Front left:
spring - one pink dot on the top coil and an orrange and blue dot on the next coil and no rubber insulating
strut - 20310FE010 (also has FB03 and SA LH)

Rear left:
spring - orange and green dot on second to bottom coil and insulation on the bottom
strut - 20360FE850 (FD62 and TG LH)

Rear right:
spring - same as rear left
strut - 20360FE840 (FD61 and TG RH)


So it looks like the front left spring doesn't match.. and the strut probably as well. Can anyone confirm what the hell I have here?

Thanks
-- Ed

Thanks for the link...

So it looks like my front are indeed mis-matched. But what about the rears? I don't see any spring listed with only an orange and green dot. What does this mean?
Also, is JDM MY03 considered V8 or V7?

Thanks

Not only front left-right mismatched but also front rears from different nodels(the rears are from Euro spec STI04 if this helps you)!

Well, I talked to Calvin, and he's as confused as I am. He's working with me on this though, and offered a full refund or a swap to some actual matching springs/struts that are comming in a couple weeks. Go Gruppe-S
