    just did springs and on mine. Had the fronts already mounted to the shock from ebay so those where easy.
    Just a heads up to add to the install, mind your swaybar links if they are old. They snap off easy. Im now waiting for a set to be shipped to me in germany but the spring install took me 2 hours while doing a rear brake job at the same time lol

    I've read through this thread and this page about replacing the shocks...

    I have a 2002 V6 Camaro that has 112,000 miles and so is (probably more than) due for shocks which I'm planning to tackle myself.

    First question is in the parts needed, apart from the new shocks. This is clearly the new top mount which Tenneco/Monroe call "Strut-Mate Strut Mounting Kit"

    costs about $75 each for left and right.

    What's not so clear is what Tenneco/Monroe call the "Strut-Mate Coil Spring Insulator"

    $16 each. Are these a part of the top mount, or are they something separate that I need to also replace? I don't see these items in the photos on the HowTo page.

    Is it likely that I need to replace the Top Mount, AND whatever that second part is at the same time, or just the shocks

    which "seem" to include new bottom insulators?

    I am replacing the factory front shocks/struts with Bilstiens. The factory shock gets larger at the top and the spring perch will not come off. Even if it did the factory one is 1-3/4" and the Bilstien is 2". Where can I get one that fits this weekend? Looking at other threads I didn't think that I would need anything else.
