These adjustable strut mounts are a blend of materials, including forged aluminum billet machined and anodized chassis mount plate, heat-treated alloy steel and Geomet coated bearing retainer, and heat treated wear resistant stainless steel spherical bearings. Each alloy was tailored to provide the most stiffness, the least weight, and the best durability.
Due to the complex curvature of the strut towers of these vehicles, we performed a surface scan of the existing sheet metal and stock strut mounts using a Faro CMM Arm. With that data, best-fit algorithms were performed to calculate the optimal shape of the new part.
This design features an offset mounting plane for the spherical bearing retainer. The angle of this plane was set to center the bearing at static ride height to provide the most angularity in every direction, eliminating any chance of binding, which reduces suspension performance and can reduce damper life.
Once the optimal packaging geometry was determined, we put all the components through a rigorous onslaught of Finite element analysis and subsequent parameter-driven optimization routines. With this, we were able to tweak and optimize the section thickness, radii, and other variables to get the stiffest part with the lowest stress levels while minimizing the installed height to keep the maximum ride travel for any ride height.
We use high-quality American made FK spherical bearings, with a wear resistant stainless steel construction and a bonded maintenance-free Teflon liner. The bearings are over sized for the application and were chosen to increase the service life of the product.
These parts allow for easy adjustment and fine-tuning of the vehicle's camber and caster. Tweaking these alignment variables can improve handling performance and increase tire life.
We also offer upper spring seats that allow the use of our adjustable strut mounts with stock geometry springs. That means any spring that uses the stock upper spring seat will work with these upper spring seats. That includes stock springs (IPD, Eibach, H&R), sport springs, KW coilover springs, etc....
If you are planning on using the factory geometry springs in combination with our adjustable strut mounts, be advised that the size of the stock geometry springs will be a limiting factor in the amount of adjustment you will be able to get with our plates. There is no way around this besides going for smaller diameter springs.
