Audi B8 Platform Upgraded Front Top Strut MountsUpgraded Spherical Front Upper Strut Mount Pair for Audi B8 Platform Vehicles The strut mounts are responsible for being the primary reaction surface for the shock absorber. Rubber strut mounts, in an effort to shield the driver from the road, are soft and flexible. When the shock absorber pushes against them, they deform in an unpredictable manner, reducing the ability of the shock absorber to control the suspension and keep the tires in contact with the ground. The rubber mounts try to do the job of the shock absorber, but without the tunability of the shock. These Spherical Upper Strut Mounts provides the perfect reaction surface for the shock absorber. It increases the efficiency of the shock absorber, keeping the tires firmly on the ground, allowing the shock to better control body roll, and reducing the reaction time between driver inputs and vehicle response. The Spherical Strut Mounts do not bind, reducing lateral forces and friction in the shock. Simply put, it lets the shock absorber do its job. Made from the highest grade materials. The rubber damper replacement is made from high strength 7075 aluminum and finished with a black anodized coating for corrosion resistance. It features an oversized PTFE lined stainless steel racing spec spherical bearing, with a 17-4 PH stainless steel adapter sleeve for ultimate strength and reliability. The mount is also fully rebuildable.
