idea for strut mounts
on the stock b13 strut mounts the part where the strut bolts to the mount is lower than the top of the mount. How about modifing the stock mounts by pressing out the stock center with the rubber, and then welding a a new center piece to the top making the strut mounting point the same hieght as the top of the mount. My theory is this would be a cheaper option for people not ready for csks but still give maybe an inch of extra travel. in the back there's no problem for space. But in the frt the only problem I can think of is if the strut tip would hit the hood. this would kinda be like how the honda boys do extended strut tops but not as extreme.

make sense?

this is the extreme honda type. we wouldn't have to extend them just move the mounting point up. cause ours are allready tall.

the rear would diffinitly work. on the frt, the center hole would have to be opened up so the shaft could come through and the new part to bolt too welded at the top. cause there has to space for the strut bearing.
