    What's up guys, I have a 2001 and bought the bilstein 6112 front kit for the truck but don't have the upper mounts. After spending a bunch of time searching and finding a bunch of contradictory info, I figured I'd just ask. Who has bought a upper mount/ top hat kit that works, and has the rubber spring isolator that goes under the top hat? I have seen the Monroe 904900, but it supposedly doesn't include that isolator and some other hardware. I've also seen the kyb sm5640 that does include those other parts, but supposedly doesn't fit. Anyone ordered a kit and it work for a first gen? Thanks for any help.

    The bottom bushing is built into the top hat, so you’ll use in order... rod adapter/lower washer included with the strut/top hat/upper bushing/upper washer/nut from strut.

    Your local auto parts store should have them in stock, go check um out.
