View Full Version : Any recommendation on upper strut mounts (front/rear)?

I am soon replacing the struts/springs to the S/R setup of tokico/eibach pro kit combination on the front and rear. I want to make it a one day job so since my car has 130k miles I figure the upper strut mounts might need swapping at the same time. What brand do you guys recommend? Rock auto has many different kinds and pretty inexpensive compared to local auto parts stores. Would it be best to leave alone and just reuse the old ones and save the money for something else?

personally, after 130k, assuming they've never been changed before, i would change them. looking down the road, assuming they will need to be replaced eventually, you might as well do it now while you're changing out the struts and springs, rather than having to tear everything apart again

With that mileage the bearing in the front mount is probaly worn out and the rears tend to rust out. Cheaper is usually not the best choice. Since you have invested in struts and springs, go with quality.
