Those are considered coilovers and Ground control is a very reputable company. They convert just about any shock/strut to coil over use. Ground Control uses some serious spring rates so you want to use a serious shock/strut with their conversion kits.

It says in the little options box after you put the focus into in, that the kit works with stock shocks and koni shocks.

I can assure you that stock shocks with the GC Focus kit (400+ lb/in spring rates) will not last very long at all (we're talking as short as a few days or weeks). Stock shocks can not dampen those kind of spring rates and will be easily overpowered.
