Top Front Strut Mount Bolts?????
Hey I was if you can get extended Front top Strut mount bolts the top 3 mounting bolts.

I have installed Pss9's with reinforcement plates underneath.

When the strut comes up the 3 bolts don't have enough thread length now for a top strut tower bar.

Can I get extended Top Strut Mount bolts?

Good question. These are part of the upper strut mount assembly thing. I suppose you'd need to find an aftermarket assembly with longer studs.

If your strut bar has a plate that sits flush on the strut tower then reinforcement plates may not be needed when using a strut bar, do a search on bf.c i think it's come up several times. The base of the strut-bar itself acts as a reinforcement plate as it distributes the load just like the factory plate was meant to do, but i think for e36s since the tower where it mounts isn't flat, not all sit flush enough.
