When compressed by hand from what I can tell yes, they spring open and if your not careful feel like they could do some damage. I go them off of Ebay probably 2 yrs ago with the intention of custom modding my 2dr but never cared enough to do so. No promises that they are like new, but if I were to guess I'd say they work just fine.ah! the 4dr trunk shocks. (i have a 94 4dr)... they still work and stuff?
