    Coilover Question.

    The top rubber mounts of my front coilovers are perished.

    My question is...

    ....do I need to buy specific top mounts from the makers of my coilovers, or do all coilover manufacturers make theirs to fit the standard VW mounts?

    Thanks in advance

    My coilovers used the normal top mounts for the car.

    Normal top mounts on mine. Buy good quality parts though. Never had any issues with Lemforder or Febi/Bilstein stuff in the past.

    Great, thanks for the replies chaps.

    While I have the thread open..does anyone have any recommendations for best makes of coilovers please.

    One of my rears has no gas in it sadly, although you'd never notice with the tautness of the springs.

    Currently running on some Pro Sports. Don't want to spend the earth but I know enough to stay away from those lovely Chinese offerings.

    Thanks guys!

    I've noticed AP's mentioned elsewhere on the net so they will take a look.

    Thanks!

    Hello mooG60,

    As regards Simeon's helpful mention about KW V1's, I coincidentally received an email this morning from Awesome advertising "big savings" on the KW range... they're doing KW V1's for Corrado's at £684, down from £784 [ie, some 13% off] from today until 31st May

    https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-brand/kw/kw-variant-1-coilovers-volkswagen-corrado-53i/

    NB: the listing doesn't specify if that's G60-specific or VR6-specific, just "Corrado 53i" [so I'm guessing that's the price for both variants ?? ]



    On looking around at other currently comparable online prices :
    Hope this helps with your deliberations.
