SVX Strut Top Mounts

Are the SVX strut top mount stud patterns identical to any other Subaru’s? Want to replace the ridiculously harsh K-Mac pillow-ball camber adjustable top mounts on the ‘94 emerald with the Whiteline camber-adjustable polymer top mounts. Not listed for the SVX, but listed for lots of older WRX’s, Impreza’s, Legacy’s, etc. Realize compatibility of front and rears may be different. Think the rears on the Emerald may still be OEM.

Re: SVX Strut Top Mounts

There is a thread here somewhere on modifying the WRX front to fit if I remember correctly.

I believe both front & rear are unique to the SVX.

Re: SVX Strut Top Mounts

In which case, Young Tom may well have drilled the strut towers to accept an alternate stud spacing, when he added the K-Macs, so I should reach out to him to find out what configuration he bought.

Re: SVX Strut Top Mounts

I used the 05 sti coilovers. The top mounts fit fine but 1 stud must be repositioned.

Re: SVX Strut Top Mounts

J-Man. I note from your signature that you have z-32 calipers with 13” rotors and 17” wheels. Did you have any fitment problems? I’m currently planning to do the 04 WRX 4-pot caliper/ Tribeca 12.4” rotor mod that is being touted over at SVX Nation on Facebook. Claimed to be a true bolt-on after adding the spacers to the calipers? I also have 17x8 Rota wheels. Any thoughts?
