Group N vs Spec B strut mounts


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I’ll be installing Bilstien b6 struts and Sti pinks on my 2005 lgt wagon. I want to check if the Group N strut mounts will work with the Bilstiens, or if I need to get the spec.b mounts. 
 

I see that the group n mounts are listed as working with various spec b and other jdm legacies. Flatirons tuning said they didn’t see why the mounts wouldn’t work, and Bilstien just pointed me to their catalogue that said non spec b cars must use their mounts. 
 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Just use the mounts from Bilstein.  My 3.0 R has the same mounts as the Spec B as they both use the Bilstein setup.  

A word of caution.  Bilstein products seems to always be on backorder at least when I need them.  So I would see if they are in stock or you need to wait four weeks to get them.  You could always call the local dealer and see if they have the stock mounts from a Spec B or 3.0 R as well.  

If Flatirons cannot give you a hard "Yes they will work" or "No they won't" just avoid buying from them.  Wasted install time just to find out they won't work is what makes me upset.

Thanks for the input! I definitely agree on wasted install time being a problem. I talked with my local Subaru specialists, and they said the Group N mounts would work with the Bilstiens, and gave me a number to call to confirm as well. 
 

I will definitely not be taking anything apart until I know for sure though.
