Strut Mounts Empty
PostSubject: Strut Mounts   Strut Mounts EmptyTue Jan 25, 2022 10:33 am

I have a strut mount question. I'm building struts for my 1996 Riv I have struts and springs already, next is strut mounts. Both of these mounts are on rockauto

GM GENUINE 19208376 Strut Mounts 19208310

And
MONROE 902930
Strut Mounts Bczc_910

My question, do these mounting kits include everything I need? Mount, bearing, Spring seat, upper isolator?
Other than springs, struts, strut mount kit what else will I need?

Thanks for the help

The GM mount is the "new" design. GM combined the upper spring seat and the strut bearing.

The Monroe is the "old" design, you will need to re-use the upper spring seats from your current mounts.

With either upper mount kit you will also have to re-use the lower isolators.

Measure your ride height and compare it to spec before you buy springs. The OE springs on this car were excellent. That said, a new set of Lesjosfors is less than $100 + tx + shipping.

You will want a stainless steel capscrew or bolt and locking nut (nylon insert) to re-mount the flexlines to the brakes, to your new struts. Just look at what's there now to reckon the sizes.

I don't want to disassemble my existing struts so I will need to purchase lower isolators.
I bought the last pair of ACDelco springs that Rockauto had a few months ago.

You might want to phone your GM dealer's parts desk and have them find you something that will work for the lower isolators. They take on a set but they never really wear out. My guess is the lower spring isolators (they call them lower spring insulators) are available, GM used them on **lots** of cars, I think they are p/n 22098264.

I bought the gm mounts of the new design from rock auto. Should I have a rubber insulator/ isolator for the upper part between my coil spring and the spring seat? Nothing came with the mounts. Thanks

knoxbroadcaster,

Let us know how this works out for you. I am planning on replacing the front struts on my 97 in a couple of months and would like to know how it went for you or if their were any issues.

You got me on that one -- it's be best to simply ask at the dealer's parts desk...

This Is Not the correct strut mount for 96 or 97. This strut mount is for a 98. Rock auto listed it incorrectly. On a positive note, rock auto is taking the mounts back even though I ordered them 3 months ago so kudos rock auto.

Looks like Monroe or kyb are the best alternatives.

Before I used the Gabriel quick-struts, I used teh Monroe mount kit. No issues with those mounts on my '98, ever (100K+ miles).

I would think KYB's parts would be good too.

It would not surprise me to find they are the same, repackaged by KYB or Monroe but actually made by Anand NVH, Rio, Raju, or some such.
