    Anybody have part #'s for the OEM strut top hats with bearings, etc?

    Looking to not have to disassemble my OEM struts, just want to bolt on new OEM top hats with bearings, etc to my coilovers.

    Thanks in advance!

    curious, why want new top hats?

    I am sending off my struts with 293 miles on them in a few days, top hats were not asked for and probably not needed...

    Coilovers should come complete.
    Coilover springs are usually smaller in diameter and therefore wouldn't fit the OE part anyway.

    Bilsteins use the OEM top units and I want a complete unit to unbolt and swap. There are your answers. ;)

    Not my first rodeo but I appreciate the concerns.

    If it is not your first rodeo as you say.
    Maybe you could try a Ford dealer for Ford part numbers instead of forums. :confused:
    Or do you need a phone number?

    I would suggest that you call Steve at Tasca (800-598-1484) for the correct part numbers and the best prices.

    However once you do get them installed, you could report back here.
    We would love to know how, the install went, how the car rides, and preforms.
    Oh, you could also post the part numbers. ;)

    I guess my reply was somewhat snarky enough to warrant your snarky reply. I was asking on the forum to see if anybody had already done this and had the part #'s handy. I do know about Ford dealers and phones.

    Thank you for your concern.

    Actually I have done this before.
    I was just too lazy to look through my paperwork to find the part numbers.
    So I figured you also were too lazy to call a dealer.

    Yes, the non-ST and ST are the same parts.
    Yes, Steve at Tasca will give you the best prices.
    Don't forget to get the 6 nuts that hold the struts in.
    They should be replaced but most important is you may drop one and never find it again.
    I have experience there too.

    Speaking of.....I put the Koni rear shocks on my ST so had to drill out the shaft hole in the top mount to fit, so thought I'd order a pair of backups when I remount the stock shocks. E-Bay had them for $42 each. Steve at Tasca had them for $9.93 each.

    Guys!! Buy from Tasca! get the best service! Go online and you can get ALL of the suspension part numbers!!!! Takes about 35 seconds....
    Next up is that 2011 SES 22 mm front bar for peanuts...

    Luv ya Tasca!!

    Quick question for you razor:

    I like the idea of having "quick swap" struts and may follow your lead, but I was wondering if the bearings/mounts are marked for installation? Judging from the photos on the parts page it looks like they are symmetric and orientation doesn't really matter, but I figure you would know for sure having recently done this. Previous cars I have owned require the top hat be properly set and have guide arrows ("this arrow towards engine" kinda thing).

    To be perfectly honest number 10 is just a bump stop so easily re-used. #11, #12 and #6 would be the primary points of concern unless the Konis include their own top nut.
