My GAZ Gold Coilovers just arrived for my 20VT track car, Just wondering, can they be fitted with the origional top mounts? or do I need to get Bravo top mounts?

Liam.

They can't be fitted with original top mounts, you need custom made ally ones.

Where did you get them from? The GAZ kit from BMS normally comes with top mounts

Bravo top mounts are far too soft for a track car, you need solid alloy as Nobby said.

Liam i have a set of top mounts here which are solid aluminium. They replicate the standard top mount in respect of caster and camber but you would adjust the camber via camber bolts anyway which is what i do. They need a couple of bearings. It would save you getting them made wwhich isn't cheap as i have spent nearly £1k on two sets. Pm me and i can take some photo's if you like.
