    The joys of having aftermarket suspension, and going back to stock.

    I need the top plates that hold the standard strut piston in place.

    If you are chasing the front upper cups (see diagram) I would suggest you buy new ones because they come with the rubber spring mount attached and as far as I know there are no aftermarket ones available

    I went through the same thing when I went from Teins to Agx. I fitted new everything except for the top plate. It is absolute madness to fit used seals and rubbers into your suspension if you are planning on keeping your zed :eek:

    On that picture; very top above where you circled there is the nut, gasket, then the plate I require.

    That's the only part I needed also ...... I thought they'd be kicking around everywhere but I found them difficult to acquire.

    p.s in the parts diagram I used, the gasket is above the top plate :rolleyes: That would work well wouldn't it :eek:

    Sorry, my mistake. Of course the gasket goes above the top plate (under the body) :rolleyes: ….. I must have had a brain fart when I posted.

    I told you the top plate was hard to come by !!! I understand they are no longer available as a new part …… Imagine the hundreds that went to scrap still attached to zed write offs :(
