    Cool Needed: Stock rear shock top mount (for upgrade design work by Vorshlag Motorsports)

    As discussed in this thread, Vorshlag Motorsports makes upgraded strut/shock top mounts for a variety of vehicles. I believe they got their start in the Bimmer world, but they've been gradually expanding their offerings, and now offer parts for Mustangs, Vettes, F-bodies, STIs, etc etc.

    I contacted Vorshlag about doing a rear shock top mount for the 1st gen CTS/CTS-V. The response I got was positive - a rear mount is already on their list for product development, and they may do a front top mount as well. However, they need a stock top mount to take measurements off of.

    So, anyone got a top mount sitting around that they can loan to Vorshlag? A UPS shipping label will be provided, and I assume they'll return the top mount once they've got the measurements. I know there are folks that have installed the Pfadt Corvette top mounts, so maybe one of you can donate? Or how about someone that has installed KSport coilovers? I think those include new top mounts (but I could be wrong).

    If you've got a top mount you can provide, please reply here (rather than PMing me) and I'll put you in touch with the guy @ Vorshlag. Thanks!

    I might have one (depending on what you need), since I recently reinstalled my MightyMouse kit.

    I believe I have a top mount sitting around as well, I'll check this evening and post a pic of what I have.

    I've got those. Most of them, anyway, because I think the Ground Control installation might replace some of the hardware stacked on top.

    Thanks for the responses!

    I found this other picture from my KW install:


    I think we would want to give Vorshlag everything on the right - not the nut, but the big black washer, the top mount, and the insert/spacer thingy to the left of the top mount. The big silver washer that is visible in the first picture I posted earlier today came with the KWs, as seen in this shot, so that's not something that would need to be sent to them.

    So, which one of you 3 has all 3 of those pieces?

    I will confirm tonight but I should have all three as I recently swapped in d2 coil overs and they have all new top mounts.

    I probably have that stuff in boxes. Its just a pain to get to right now. I'll check just in case.

    BTW Pat, why don't you check with Angelo @ Anze. I think he already has those mounts made up...

    The only pics I've seen were the clevis style ones you're running with your super whamodyne race setup.

    LOL, I know, but I had discussed this with him previously. There won't be any pictures around but IIRC he can do them. Won't hurt to put a call in...

    Is the top shock mount the same on the CTS 3.6L (FE1) and it is on the CTS-V (FE4)?

    I sent Vorshlag one of my mounts about December last year. I haven't heard anything lately.
