The 2007 GYT-R Edition had rezzies on the front shocks, and then everyone 2008+ had them aswell.
That doesn't make them YFZ shocks

To answer your question you have both YFZ and Raptor A-arms. Both ATV's utilize the same A-arm setup.

If your purchasing shocks get them for the Raptor. If you get YFZ shocks, even though they are for the same A-arms they will be valved differently because of the weight difference in the ATV's.

The YFZ shocks are also about a inch shorter. I'm guessing the YFZ has a different top mount setup.

The SE/GYTR shocks from 2007 are the same that came on the 2008 model. Descent shocks for the price you can get them used, but if you go for new ones, you probably have better options.
