Default correct shocks on mp7.5

Are these the stock shocks that come on the car? I want to replace them with aluminum threaded shock bodies. What other shocks will fit this car? I found some GPM threaded shocks on ebay, has anybody tried GPM shocks? Would it be better to upgrade to the mp9 shocks?

those are traxxas shocks. I would go on ebay and get some kyosho shocks, the 7.5 ones with the 3.5mm shafts or the 777 ones should be fine, I don't know if the 7.5 has enough clearance in the right places to run big bores.
