Okay my fellow rado owners, i had just put bilstein sport struts with h and r race springs on my vr, however i forgot to buy vr strut mounts, and put brand new g60 ones on instead, cause im broke, and i had a new set of g60 ones laying around, so what will happen, besides premature failurew of the strut mount.Will i damage anything else preme?How do you know whew the mounts are failing, is it when the tire can move up and down when lifted??

Re: brain dead (joeyz)

you'll be fine with the G60's, no harm will come to the car

Lifting the wheel doesn't mean it has bad mounts, could be other things as well... it's easiest to tell by driving it over rail road tracks or the sort, you'll get that nice clunking noise. Also really bad mounts are easy to tell by popping the hood, the top metal hat will be sitting WAY above the actual mount as the rubber/bearings have broken down.
