Default Shocks & Struts SPRINGS????

I bought A 98 GS400 that has been lowered... I want to put it back to stock height... My question is if I need the stock springs or just slap on some OEM shocks and struts?

All you need is stock springs. They should be easy to find online (ebay) for cheap.

So there is no getting it back to stock height without the springs?... New shocks and struts?

or either way Ill need the springs?

You'll need oem springs to get back to stock. Struts alone will not get you back to stock height. What is your car lowered on anyway? Coilovers or just lowering springs? You also might wanna post in the suspension forum next time.
