Yes they do but with very minor adjustments... look at the website i gave you...

Original equipment on the ZX2 S/R package, These non-adjustable struts are a must when installing lowering, sport springs, or coilover kits. The struts are made with 15mm shorter rods to help prevent bottoming out the rod inside the strut, and provide improved body control with a firmer ride. This matched set offers an incredible combination of handling, ride quality, appearance and savings. Set includes both front and rear struts. 1991-1996 Escorts require slight trimming of the top strut bushing.

Tokico's were stock on 2nd gens, and probably 3rd gens and zx2's as well. They just are not high performance ones. The s/r tokicos just have a more aggressive valving due to the 1" drop in ride height and more performance oriented suspension setup.

Honestly I failed to see what type of minor mod needed to be made besides the trimming of the Bumpstop on the 2nd Gen Scorts. I just finished my Ground Control Coilovers about a month ago and that was the only thing that had to be changed, other than that the struts lined up perfectly and all I can tell is that I might want ot invest in a set of caster/camber plates as the wheels have a very minor negative camber... but what the heck, it was well worth the time it took to install the suspension (a total of 4 hours all by my lonesome)

negative camber is good.. only buy camber plates if you want more negative camber for the track.

I had no trouble with the bumpstops.. I just trimmed them for length and then eased them onto the shock rod. The little plastic bearing cartridge for the front struts (what the front wheels turn on) needed to be reamed out about 2mm with a drill.

Since you're installing coil-overs, hotscort, you may need to remove the dust caps that come on the S/R struts in order for the sleeves to fit the shock body. You can just pound them off.
