One way to help improve the handling on your car is to remove any excessive movement. By fitting these new alloy solid top mounts, strut top movement is eliminated resulting in more direct handling. They work by replacing the standard rubber top mount and bearing which results in much less movement at the top of the shock absorber. This also has the added effect of stopping the top strut knocking which many Clio 172s and 182s suffer from while at the same time not effecting the quality of the ride.
This new bolt in design takes these mounts to the next level in handling improvement. By bolting through the top of the car's suspension turrets these mounts completely eliminate strut top movement while still allowing smooth rotational movement due to the built in rose joint top bearing. Full fitting instructions are included and for an easy installation and just 3 x 8mm holes need to be drilled in each turret to allow the mounts to be securely bolted to the car. These are a superb upgrade and the best value, and performing, mounts on the market.
These will fit with all standard and aftermarket suspension kits and are sold as a pair.
These top mounts will fit all Clio 2 models from 1998 to 2006 (including Clio B RS 172/182 models) as well as the Clio V6 and all Twingo 2 models including the Twingo RS, Twingo GT and 75bhp 1.2 16v models.
Service kits are now available for these mounts.
The kit includes:
2 x replacement bearings - 2 x seal ring shims - 2 x retaining circlips.
