Don't waste your time installing tired old junkyard struts into your car unless you know their actual mileage and condition. It isn't worth the time & effort spent installing them. Either buy new, or find a high quality, low-mileage used set.

If they're almost new, and you know this for a fact, then they would be acceptable to use (provided they aren't damaged in any way).

Most likely yes, but to be certain, which year 325 are they from?
