2g upper spring mounts

I installed these last week, and had a question concerning the fit of the spring isolators. Which one does everyone else use, the 1g or the 2g? The 2g isolator fits the mount, but not the spring, and vice versa. Should I trim the 1g isolator to fit the upper mount? I haven't had any drivability issues, but I haven't pushed the car since installation.

Did you do this to fine tune fender clearance? Or are they just "better"?

I have 1g springs, and the back was a little lower than the front. I have cut the fronts before, and didn't like it, so I put in another uncut front set in and decided to alter the back springs this time instead.

Glad to see this thread. I did the same thing, and my car sits lower in the rear as well. Why do you think this is? Sorry not trying to hijack the thread.

PS what did you do to alter the rear?

Because the rear springs are too short? The 2g upper mount gives it a little bit of a boost.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I'm wondering if a combination of Evo8 and TEL springs + 2g mounts can make something that is level and performs well for a daily driver... I have the Evo and TEL springs, some day I'll lookup the spring rates and heights and figure something out.

The Evo spring rates are about double what the DSMs are. I wish I had gone with Evo's instead.

werd, it would look better sitting there with Evo suspension. Honestly the 1g stuff wasn't a huge improvement.

yeah, i'm pretty disappointed as well with the 1g. rolls like a barge in the corners. without swapping struts, do the evo springs bolt in, ala 1g awd springs? I've seen the how to section on the full swap, but i've got some newer struts that i would rather keep.

btw, wendy, i installed 2g upper spring mounts in the place of my 1g/vr4 upper mounts. they are an inch shorter or so, so they jack up the rear of the car to even it out.

do you need to trim the springs at all?

Only the fronts.

Either one. Everyone says the 2G mounts make the back sit 3/4" higher than the stock mounts with the same springs. I'm not so sure about it but that's what they say.
