Coilovers missing dustcovers/stops

I'm getting a used set of KW V2's and I noticed in the picture that they are missing dustcovers and the yellow stops. For some reason, this set has black stops and only on two of the struts. Should I be concerned? I hear that suspension shops should have replacements. Or could I just use my OEM ones?

The bumpstops are engineered by KW. I wouldn't buy that susp as it's probably been bottomed out w/o bumpstops. If it's yours now, get the correct ones from KW. Who knows what those black stops on the shocks are and the struts definitely need bumpstops. Dust shields aren't that necessary depending on weather/debris.

I also noticed that this set is missing the top and bottom nuts on the rear shocks. Will the oem nuts fit? Don't want to take my car apart before realizing they don't fit.
