    GTO strut mounts

    Can anyone identify what brand these strut mounts may be? I picked them and the shock assemblies up and I think they're the poly stuff and they're still good but i haven't been able to find out who makes a red strut mount. If anyone knows I'd gladly appreciate the help. The tein springs on the shocks may be for sale if anyone is interested. thanks

    Could be Energy Suspension or Pedders from the looks of them. The springs look like Teins.

    My guess would be Nolathane. PN 44018 or 44019 if they had the bearings included.

    Nev3r - they're not adjustable, I found them for sale from a wrecked gto. I got them because of the mounts. I haven't been able to remove them completely but i'm guessing they do have the bearings. What brand are the nolathanes? Are those good or bad?

    I've been gathering items slowly to swap out shocks and install lowering springs, and saw these and I could buy both of these for less than what i could buy one Moog mount. I also wanted to compare that brand of spring to the springs i have.

    thanks for the help.

    If you dis-assemble the struts, you may be able reuse the bearings under the mount if they stay together. I'm not a big fan of re-using them and they cost $40 - $50 ish each to replace on the rubber mounts, so I'd say replace them if you can swing it. It depends on the condition of the bearing.

    I prob will replace them. I have fixed a few "it squeaks when I turn" complaints for a few of my friends by cleaning and checking out the bearing and reusing, but then it was on a 02-04ish impala's and malibu's.
    What would be a good brand to go with on the bearings?

    I've been partial to Pedders for a while. Check around for price and availability for all brands. Check the style of bearing under the urethane mount before ordering. I don't think they would be different, but I've not seen the underside of one. The OE style are 2 piece (white on top, yellow on bottom), if that's the style under the urethane, you're good to go.
