Default Upper strut MOUNTS????

do i need these for my lowering kit? I hope to get the intrax lowering springs with at 1.7 front and 1.6 rear with KYB'S and a 15-16" rim and falken 512 series tires if that matters. I also plan to "DIY" this project. DO i need theM or does anyone have any opinoins on my setup?

Unless they're making a grinding noise when you turn, I'd say you're ok to keep the originals.

or if you are "clunking" on minor bumps in the road @ 25-35 mph, then do so also. thats what mine sounded like before they were replaced.

Lowering also generally changes the spring rate and stress on the upper mounts. Better to spend the extra $$$ now then have to take everything back apart in a few months.

I'd get the OE ones from Saturn. Be careful when you remove the front ones so the ball bearings don't fall out. The rear ones don't have that problem.
