Got the machined parts today for my spherical bearing top mounts. I've begun a trial assembly, so here are some pics;

The components.



Bearing housing.





Bearing spacer on strut.



Assembled parts on strut.







They just need to be plated now and the adjustment screws swapped for shorter ones. Then I can assemble the struts and fit them up! :)

did you have these made to your design or have you bought them pre-made?
They like a top job, i would certainly be interested in something like this in the future.

ben21 - They're made to my own design.

16vastra - Yes they're thin. But they are made using high-tensile steel. They're still thicker than the standard top mounts which are 2.5mm thick. Aluminium ones would be around 8mm thick.
