After looking at this article:

I'm a little confused. I can make the bracket and was looking at buying a set of KYB GR-2s, but what else is needed to do this swap into an EA81? Rear springs I'm guessing, any other mounting hardware?

that was my article. yes, if you are getting new rear ea82 struts, you will need to get the springs too.

I just got a pair of complete struts from a junkyard for $70 when I did that....
