Sonic Tuning V1 Strut mounts

Hey Folks,

I bought a 335 a few months ago. The car has a sonic tuning S1 suspension and the strut mounts are in really bad shape and need replacing.

Does anyone know if you can use OEM strut mounts with the sonic tuning S1 coilovers? Or do you have to use the mounts that come from ST?

No, as OEM are not design for coilover style springs. Either Sonic or another aftermarket meant for coilover style springs.

Thanks Feuer. That makes perfect sense.

I can't imagine mixing and matching parts is easy, or recommended either. but it would be a shame to have to buy a full suspension just to replace strut mounts. Are there any aftermarket parts that are designed for coilover setups?

If you know the coil/spring ID it would help with the search.
