Honda Genuine Upper Mount Hat Kit - When installing new suspension that does not include new upper mounts you need to take apart the stock shock assemblies to transfer parts over. These are the needed parts. Get them to simplify the new part installation, and make reinstalling the stock suspension easier!

Upper mounts are interchangable between the Base, Sport, and Type-S TL models. The Base Non-S kit comes with rubber bushings in the upper mounts that provide a cushion between the damper and the chassis, making sharp bumps seem to have "rounder" edges. Type-S bushings are reinforced with metal pates to give a more linear and direct feel to the suspension that will make it feel more stable under load, and inspire more confidence in driving. The ride is not "worse" with the Type-S bushings but you will get a little more road feedback.

The "w/ Koni Sport" option will remove certain hardware that is not usable wth the larger-shafts on the Koni sport shocks (necessary hardware comes with the Konis themselves). Note that Koni dampers do not come with new bump stops or dust boots and Heeltoe does offer those components as well.

Customer Questions

Q:

Do I need these if I'm going to buy the H&R or BC coilovers? What are bump stops?

A:

A suspension kit like the BC Racing BR is pre-assembled and would not need to have these mounts. An H&R kit does not come with upper mounts, so getting a hat set like this could be beneficial for installation.

Bump stops are not included or needed with this kit unless you are getting a set with Koni dampers.

Q:

I'm not clear on one of the topic, but isn't OEM a genuine factory part? So is this part made from Honda/Acura factory OEM?

A:

Yes OEM and Geniune are used interchangeably a lot of times. This is a GENUINE part, meaning it comes straight from Acura. Read more on this topic here: What is the difference between OE, Genuine, OEM, and OER/Aftermarket Parts?

Q:Would I need these if I had bought the tein street advance z suspension. If so does this come with everything needed?
A:This is optional, you can use the existing upper mounts on your suspension in most cases. This kit does give you all fresh new parts, everything you do need with the SAZ install!
