New top hats for the rear is more than likely. The front top hats appear to fit just fine. I'll start working again in the morning, however one side of the Subi (front and rear) has been disassembled. I took a few pictures which I'll post ASAP.

The new Bilstein rear spring is tapered at the top and this is where the OE rear top hat will Not fit. The OE rear top hat is to large in diameter to mate with the new tapered coil spring. Where do I fish for the elusive JDM top Hat??? (Here's a clue,,,, try Japan first - funny!)
Cheers, Mike
