Shock Mount Opinions

Hey everyone, I havent been on the forums in a while, but I am needing some advice. I have priced out two different options for complete shocks mounts as I am replacing my original shocks with Konis, paired with my HR Sport Springs.

Turner Motorsports.
This includes OEM Sachs Front Shock Mounts
And a Rear Shock Mount without a Reinforcement Plate, includes gaskets and nuts.



ECS Tuning
This includes a "Meyle" brand front shock mount.
And Rear Shock mount Kit... including.
Meyle Heavy Duty Rear Shock Mounts
Shock Mount Gaskets
Z3 Reinforcement Plates
New Hex Nuts




So tell me what you think would be best. I appreciate the help...

Yeah, I saw your thread. I was just looking for some more advice. You didnt have the ECS tuning rear shock kit on there either... Which to me seems like a fair price and high quality.

I think this thread is to add a comparison of front shock mounts, in addition to the other thread about rear shock mounts.

I have gone the Rogue RSM route, and am waiting to gather the rest of the parts for my suspension rebuild. Are there any other options for the Front shock mounts? The price difference between the two listed (Meyle vs Sachs) above is significant!

Thanks.

I think you can get more camber and caster up front if you use m3 front strut bearings.

So, I decided to get the Rogue Engineering Rear Shock Mounts from Rogue. And I got some Lemfoerder (OEM Supplier) Front Strut Mounts and a OEM valve cover gasket, free shipping from Pelican Parts. Thanks for the help.

Edit: Not from Rogue, from BeastPower Motorsports... they are listed retailer on Rogue's website and I found that they have an ebay account where they are offering them with free shipping.

Gotta pinch those pennies haha.
