    Rear Strut mount comparison

    Is there any real difference in quality/performance between the KYB/Gabriel/Monroe/MOOG rear mounts? I have KYB struts and seems the KYB mounts will take about a week before they ship out. If there is no difference to be had, I'll order a different mount that ships same day.

    Thanks!

    I doubt there is a huge difference. Maybe a different type of rubber.

    I think they ALL have issues. No matter which one I get, I reuse the original boot protector, as EVERY accordion boot I have used has torn. As long as you use the OEM type protector, get which ever is cheapest, and last but not least, I prefer the rubber jounce bumpers if using sensatracks, but your mileage may vary... as the rubber as jambed to the KYBs I use on some cars several times. maybe foam would be better for them?

    I disagree. I have put tons of miles on monroe mounts/boots and haven't had one fail yet.
