Default Xidas with ISC top hats

Hey yall,

About to upgrade to some Xidas, wondering if I should use the ISC top hats or not. I'm guessing they were designed to not need the extra travel. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't use ISC top hats.

Just in general.

Read post #4, pick one and go. Xida aren't designed for extended top hats.

Bahurd nailed it. I gave him a cat.

NA/NB Xida are designed around OEM NB geometry. Use NB mounts from us or your own OEM, alternatively, our Billet Coaxial Mounts.

Not on an NB. But I have a set on my 1994, and the extra bit of travel was invaluable. Although they are pretty ugly, and were probably overpriced.

The design is sub-par compared to others on the market, was really the intention of my post.

Xidas don't need extended hats period, but even NBs with bilstein-based coilovers could use extended hats front AND rear.
