figuring out front ix shock inserts - need IX pro's !!!!

hey guys, I have an IX I am messing around with and trying to figure out if the front struts have billy's in them that match the rear shocks. I pulled up the dust cover and the shaft dwarfs even a set of billy sports for regular e30's, but alot of things are different on the IX so not sure if these are billy's in the front sturts or oem shocks.

I am trying not to have to break down the front struts to figure them out

Just to be clear Balatch is always cool to deal with, the other guy was pushy who owned the car.

Yup, same here. He drives past my place sometimes, so I can't argue with that. Home delivery in the boonies.
