Default Billet Coaxial XIDA Top Mounts

I've been checking the 949racing store every day for 2 months, and I haven't found it for sale in the blemished, or new sections...

Anyways, anyone have these front and rear?

I'm waiting to send in my xidas for a rebuild for these mounts.

Thanks,
Marcello

I'll have a set of the old style 949 billet XIDA mounts for sale in 2-3 weeks if those interest you.

I'm not sure, could you send me a picture to [email protected]? Are they coaxial?

They're still on the car so I can't take pictures right now. I think they're functionally identical to the new orange ones. From google:

Do the XIDAs not have quality parts anymore?

2nd gen? Unless they've been abused I'd be surprised if they were blown.

they are not abused at all, either 2nd or 3rd gen.

I think something inside is loose. or something.

I didn't dare touch them because they were purchased pre-assembled and will be inspected by 949 or whoever it is that inspects defective ones

Only 2 gens. They get sent to inertia labs in Texas. They treated me very well and covered my rebuild and return shipping under warranty.

Just kind of disappointing when they still cost 2500 dollars.

Umm, they cost $1800 without mounts. But yes, sounds like you got unlucky.

I definitely didn't pay 1800, this was in July of last year? Idc, doesn't really matter now. Hopefully the rebuild and better mounts will be a sweet setup.

Sorry you have not been happy with your gen2 Xida kit. It doesn't sound like you ever contacted us with each of these concerns but I'll address them anyway:

1. The needle thrust bearings work perfectly as shipped. You may have additional expectations for fit but I can assure you, they work unless they are bent and no longer round.

2. Set screw or rubber insulator. We have plenty, if we missed it, just ask and we'll send you another.

3. Race shocks generally don't have dust boots. This is not unique to Xidas. You shouldn't have any issues. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

4. Allen keys are in every mechanics tool box. Just trying to make the kit as affordable as possible. We don't need to tack on a few bucks for a tool you already have. If you don't already have a set of metric allen keys, you're doing it wrong

5. Again, I don't recall speaking with you about this but sorry if there is a problem with the damper. If they are under warranty, we fix it. Not complicated.

6. Sound like you are not sure if you have a problem with the front damper or not. In any case, let us know, they're under warranty for another 3 months or so.

7. NB mounts work just fine. BCM's work better but sometimes we're sold out. We have had the BCM's in stock since you purchased your set. The option is yours. As the guy who designed them, I can assure you they were intended to be fully functional with OEM NB mounts. So no they were not "designed for BCM's" only

You gotta be proactive and contact us. There is a reason virtually every testimonial for Xidas is strongly positive. They're good. If yours aren't, pick up the phone.

Don't wait until you are out of warranty period!

I told him the same thing (about calling/contacting you asap)
He's a busy dude though, hopefully y'all can get in touch soon (or already have).

This is customer service hard at work. I'm so grateful for the advice and input given on and off the forums.

Sorry, I didn't mean to turn this thread into a discussion like this. I'm just interested in the billet mounts.
