well raceland coilovers were your first mistake. non m strut mounts are pretty soft aluminum iirc.

Please describe and post pictures of your problem. Are your strut mounts mushrooming?

Also, you could get http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-32...ates-pair.aspx

I know your problem is for the rear but it applies

Parts 12, 13, and 14

Mushrooming is when the strut mount is actually deforming the body at the 3 bolt points. Reinforcement plates prevent that. Are you missing any of the parts in that diagram (12 isn't required me thinks)?
