I know that the RSM should be changed because they tend to wear out (poor design?). But what about the front strut mounts. Have you changed them or do they hold up pretty well.

IMO.. change them... if u r swapping your entire suspension, the front strut mounts are only an additional $50 for the pair... its worth it...

They tend to wear at a more even rate.... maybe a little less than twice as long as a RSM. But I'd change both...

Good Luck,

Les
