Nothing wrong with stock. Just replace them as they age, they're cheap. Get some reinforcement plates.

I went with the rogue RSM. It makes removing the shocks easier

I have the ground control race mounts on my track car (https://groundcontrolstore.com/produ...ace-mount-pair). No issues so far. They have street options as well. No reinforcement needed with the GC mounts.

I might be able to sell you a pair of Rogue Engineering street RSMs if you’re interested. I should be done with coilover install on the street car tomorrow, and need to make sure the monoball RSMs I’m going to use aren’t noisy first.
