Gen 1 Strut Mount question.

Hi fellow Mazda zoomers. I got a question.

Anyone know or recommend an upgraded strut mount better than the factory rubber type? I don't need camber adjustability, just a solid mount.

I did find these on ebay but not sure if its any good.

If you are running Lowering Springs...just stick w/ the factory type.

But if you wanna go Coilovers I highly recommend ISC COilovers....This is what I upgraded to so I can get rid of the plastic Mounts.

Thanks @ultimica06 but I forgot to mention I purchased the Tein Street Basis Coilovers model #GSM24-1UAS2 which do not come with top mounts. Says to use OEM mounts. Was wondering if anyone found a better upgrade option.
