RSM reinforcement plates
 
I just saw a picture of someone who mounted the plates on the top (inside the trunk) I mounted mine underneath the car, however I'm starting to think they should be mounted inside the trunk since there is already a heavy plate ( the RSM itself) underneath.

Where should they be ?

It should be on top, it does nothing on the bottom, it's purpose is to spread the load of the nuts you have bolted on the top which only have a small amount of surface area, therefore the metal is more likely to tear. With the plates on the top, the load from the nuts are spread across a larger area reducing the chance that it will tear the metal.

So now I see the point of the Rogue Engineering plates, much nicer to change your shocks

Thanks

Yes. but it also requires you to have Rogue Engineering RSMs or to remove the studs on the RSMs you have.

Goodluck dealing with Rogue, they are a pain in the ass when it comes to international orders, they want a wire transfer, and shipping is ridiculous. $40 for RSMs worth $99. Stupid practices like that, don't get my money.

Well I wasn't about to change them, and as long as you don't drive in the winter it would be fine. Thanks for the heads up about Rogue though
