    Strut mounts

    I need to purchase new front upper strut mounts for my 87 Charger.
    The ones on there now are Raybestos and lasted about 8 years and the right side is knocking and both seem to be sacked out. I really don't put much mileage on the car, maybe 1000 miles per year.

    I plan on purchasing from Rockauto and they have several different brands to choose from, any suggestions? They are all relatively inexpensive, just looking for the best quality.

    Stick with a name brand and hope for the best ?

    None of them are all that good. I've come to reusing OEM original where safe to reuse and have had excellent results. Monroe, Moog, KYB ect are all sourcing that junk from the cheapest third world vendor.
    1994 Shadow Sedan. 2.2 N/A, A568 355,000 miles. (In the family since new).
    1987 Shelby CSX #418. Long term rebuild and restore.

    That's the thing, it's the rubber used that doesn't last long. Like I mentioned, the car sits on its wheels most of the time and the rubber becomes concave then stuff starts knocking.

    With that said, I see some for $3.00 lol... What do you think my chances are?
