Top mounts..

Recommended Posts

So I've been running JOM bluelines for a few months now, I didn't expect them to be so...creaky...

What top mounts and bearings should I be using? I'm having a lot of trouble finding the original ones to buy (silver  disk with the black rubber ring around the outside) but if anyone has a link to them it would be greatly appreciated.

I've read with the JOM coilovers there may need to be some modding of the mount, can anyone confirm this?

Thanks!

Spray silicone oil/grease between rubber mounts... creaks all gone in a moment :) -Assuming all correctly assembled.

I've greased it but it seems the creaks are more structural than it being the strut, gonna have to disassemble the struts and maybe add new top mount  bearings

By silver disk, are you describing the limit plate at the very top of the strut inside the engine bay - this stops the strut dropping out of the turret?

The bearings are the same as used in many VW's I know they were the same as Mk3 Mk4 - I used to fit Lemforder bearings, but unlike their bushes they did not seem to last, look for SKF ones, with a metal body.

Yes it's the ones in the engine bay, I'm going to return some SKF bearings I ordered as these were clearly wrong. I've found someone who is breaking an arosa so may have to ask very nicely if he will sell them to me :D
