what did you use for the mounts? sometime similar to this (http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_strut-mate-strut-mounting-kit-monroe_20740136-p?SID=1jcv0slayhl73&cm_mmc=aff-_-cj-_-6146822-_-10711125#utm_source=aff&utm_medium=cj&utm_campaign =6146822&utm_content=10711125) or what did you use?

thanks!

I used those Monroe's, which include the upper isolator.

Re: Koni FSD's installed

I read your various posts on the Koni FSDs and am considering getting them. A forum member asked you about the mounts you used. Did you say you used the Monroe strut mate kit? You replaced the springs with OEM, but did you just use the isolators and mounts from the Monroe kit?

Koni does not list an FSD application for the WK on their website. Did you order a particular FSD system? Or is there just one universal version of it? I want to call someone there, but I wanted to get a better idea of what you did first.

Thanks.

I used OEM springs and the OEM spring isolators, plus the monroe strut mounts for the front. Koni US has to special order the FSD's from the Netherlands as they are only listed for the WH designation, Euro market WK.
