sounds good, but I might use the money for the FM mounts to instead have FCM revalve the Bilsteins. I've read nothing but good things about his revalves and being on New York roads we can use all the compliance we can get.

Custom Bilstein revalve: for your desired spring rates, using stock digressive pistons

* Revalve labor cost - $155 per damper
* Installation of needle valve to make damper serviceable - $14.95 each
* Shock fluid (2 bottles for 4 shocks) - $20.50 for 4 dampers
* S&H from FCM - $35 approximate (insured shipping)
* Total - $735.30* shipped to your door
FM Mounts may be expensive, but they are not THAT expensive.

so it's an extra 200 bucks if you would have been using the FM mounts at all the corners.

FCM Bumpstops + Top hats + Boots = 247
FM Springs = 249

you linked the Mazda competition mounts, not FM's purple thingies. If that's what you originally intended than my comment about the revalve makes less sense financially.

Well they are cheaper then the purple ones, so I figured they would work. But they are more expensive then FCM's so they dont make sense.
