just finished installing my pedders strut mounts

Hello everyone, just wanted to show off my shot/collapsed upper strut mounts on my GTO. These are my pedders upper mounts I bought...they took a while to get here but I got them. I also went ahead and ordered the bearings too..good idea on my part!
Conclusion is my front lift, I perceive a "lighter" ride...I also had to change out one bolt to fix my camber...now she rides straight! I did my own alignment so I made sure it wouldn't pull.
Here are the pictures I uploaded.

THANKS

Good job. I'm going to do mine when I do the struts and springs.

I looked at the strut bushing again. I must say the one you are showing is seriously collapsed

I went with the Lovells. Theirs are a poly bushing. IMHO it's a good idea to order the bearings with the mounts. It's sometimes possible to reuse the old ones but to me it isn't worth it. Bump stops are cheap and they get mashed up too so while you're in there. . .
