Well I’ll have the old strut mount problem on the blue Monroe. I’ll have the oem mounts ordered, but my question and concern is. Can I use the Monroe or aftermarket seat & bearing in combination with the oem mount?

Years ago I did some experimenting with fitment of OEM and aftermarket parts. I seem to remember that the aftermarket bearings I had were a really loose fit on the OEM mount. I measured the I.D. of the aftermarket bearing vs an OEM bearing and the opening on the aftermarket bearing was considerably larger resulting in the crappy fit.

So maybe I’ll should buy the oem bearing .When i bought the mount at the dealer I was told it was 1 left at a Indiana dealership and couldn’t tell me anything else. If I can’t find 2 of then I’ll find out myself if is going to work or not. Thank you Rondo

Have you checked ebay for new-old OEM stock? If they haven’t all disappeared, you can generally save a little, plus usually free shipping. I bought a pair 4 or 5 years ago.

I had a hard time finding a single OEM bearing on Ebay a year ago. There were a few but 1 or 2 of them were retarded expensive and price gouged!

There's a couple on there now from OEM online dealers for $115-121 + Shipping!

What did you pay for the OEM strut mounts? They had to be pretty pricey?
