Will these shocks will work w/ my 300DT?

Hello all,

Crap I meant springs, not shocks!

I own an 87 300D T. A few months back, I thought I was done w/ the rust repairs and could have the springs installed for me. However, that did not happen and I have not gotten around to the springs until this weekend. An 87 diesel 300D is pretty rare for CA junkyards, so the old timer there said "These'll work".

So after de-griming the spring to find the part #, here is what I have, courtesy of Gsxr's text file:
400E Std & Sportline (Euro only)
Standard Suspension:
124-321-39-04 Front Spring, heavy ($75)

These shocks above are 16.5" long. Note, there is a blue dot on top and two greens and two yellows. From the cd-rom, blue means that I have the longer of the two springs---key point, maybe.

So here are the specs from Brian's page for my vehicle (see attachment). As you can see, the spring height is higher for the stock OEM size for the gas 300 services, which is probably around or greater than 17 inches.

Anyone know if this will work or not? Or is it back to the junkyard?
