The upper mounts will probably be similar spec to D2, BC Ksport etc. I have had the Ksport ones my car for about 7 years/30k miles, and they have only recently in the last few months started to get a bit of play in the spherical bearing. I have no doubts the FEAL versions will be at least that good. Only other ones I would personally consider using, are camber/caster adjustable ones.

Quoting 91_427:

I'm really interested in eventually getting a set of these for mine, but I'm waiting for the guinea pigs (you guys) final opinion on the quality, ride, etc. of them.

Anyways, I do have a few question sregarding this most recent update:
If I order these from Feal will I have to specify that I need to have the camber adjustable upper mounts?
What brand did Feal use for the camber adjustable upper mount?
Also, if I source the camber adjustable upper mounits myself would Feal be open to the idea of using the ones I select?




Sounds good. We'll be providing more updates here as time goes on.

As of yesterday, i can say that camber adjustable upper mounts are supposed to come standard, and do come standard, on this kit. There was a mix up on EMX5636's kit and once i spoke with Feal about it, they got right to rectifying the issue. Anytime a 441MI-05 kit is ordered, it should have camber adjustable upper mounts.

With regard to the brand of the upper mounts, pretty sure EMX hit it on the head. Probably same overseas manufacturer supplying to BC, K Sport, others. Just as BC calls them their own, i'm sure Feal would refer to them as "theirs". I suspect the info on the manufacturer would be kept proprietary.

The 441 kit would ship with their own upper mounts. If you were doing a custom road race or gravel kit, or maybe even something in between an off the shelf 441 and a race kit, i certainly wouldn't rule it out, but i would be surprised if they wanted to build a more standard 441 with a mount that wasn't their own. As i learned through our discussion about doing an inverted kit, it's very important to them to be able to stand behind their product, and introducing someone else's parts into the mix might not be their first choice from an after-sales support perspective.

Can the rear clamp-on brake line mounts be purchased separately?

ApexHunter and EMX5636

Thank you both for answering my questions. It cleared up my confusions about these coilovers. I'm sure that whatever upper mounts come with the kit now will be more than sufficient for my needs.

Historically, Feal has not offered the clamp-on brake line brackets separately, but they said they'll do it for us. Working on details now.

No problemo

Thanks for your patience everyone while we worked on this. Now available to purchase HERE.

Please note that these have not been available separately before, so the lead time would probably be a couple of weeks, give or take.

I'll hopefully have some updates and pictures on the top hats within a day or two. David tells me they are custom making these from steel instead of aluminum for the plates, which I like because they will be able to take much more abuse.

Yes, that is correct. I was under the impression that they'd be sourcing Brand X top hats from the old Taiwan parts bin, however that was not the case. These were just manufactured, hence the extended delay. And yes, laser cut steel. Previous GVR4 kits shipped with a non-adjustable upper mount. The quality was good, but not a feature that any of us wanted to sacrifice. FEAL said they could deliver, and fortunately Justin and Anthony were willing to wait. Thanks again for your patience guys, they came out great.

I'll be installing Anthony's kit on Saturday and i'm pretty amped. Justin, i tracked your mounts this morning and you should see them tomorrow! Sweet! I spent some time taking pics over the weekend, here's a few of the upper mounts etc.

Finally an update! Got mine installed over the weekend. Fitment was perfect, the bolt holes are precise. I wanted to get some 1 piece stainless brake hoses made to delete the weird factory brackets, and just got those installed today. Finally set her down off the lift to measure and set ride height. Sitting pretty! I'll have a few pics up probably tomorrow of everything. Thanks again David! Can't wait to get some miles on them!

Thanks Justin. I really look forward to hearing how they perform.

I haven't provided an update here either obviously, for two reasons. One, i haven't had a chance to do a proper road test. I was able to drive it around the block a bit but the alignment was pretty far out after the install. He has since had the car aligned and really likes the feel of these shocks. Second, we ran into a clearance issue up front with the brake line brackets, which prevented us from getting much negative camber. The bottom line there is that if you plan to use the factory brake line brackets with the Feal universal brackets, one or both will need to be modified for clearance. So far nor Anthony or I have worked on this, but i think the one piece brake lines would be my preference here as well from the sound of it.

Well, only about 10 miles on them, but two airborne occasions over a train bridge near me. Nice and soft landings, but not bouncy or unsettled at all. Handling will have to wait a bit till I get a more precise alignment (just measured toe and OTC camber gauge). But so far I am 100% pleased. These are the brake lines as well. Plenty of line for travel and turning lock-to-lock, but stays close to the struts, so won't rub on anything. I also added grommets in the brackets after the pics were taken.
