all depends if you got a bit of spare cash and whether nor not you can source them on a Saturday!

thing to do is whip off a mount and have a look - i re-used mine when Dave fitted my springs and that was with approx 87k on them

Just get new ones,it make the job easier and quicker,you also have to consider the bearing aswell.

I've just bought some today,

V1J0 412 249 Bearingx2
V1J0 412 331 C Strut Mountingx2
VN 903 536 04 Hex Nutx2
£30 for the lot

What are you bumping for?

The part numbers are there and it's only £30 for new parts,it also makes the job quicker as you won't have to dismantle the old shocks for the top mounts.
