Question Noticed Struts were Tokico

I was changing my brakes and rotors today and noticed that I have tokico struts. I bought this car used. its an 04 N/A so im not sure if these struts are stock or not. I know they are not the Tokico blue's because they are black struts.

Can anyone offer any suggestions to what i might have? or to what the stock struts are so i can get this confusion out of my head?

I know all PT GT came with black Tokicos but I wasn't sure about the rest.They are just a softer and cheaper version of the blue Tokicos.They have contracts with a many car manufacturers to supply them with shocks. btw, I found this out wen I called Tokico's tech support.

Yes the factory shocks/struts are indeed make by Tokico and are black. But like Xtrm said they are a softer non-performance type, way different then the Blue's.
