I swear I saw some top hats that are designed to fit the stock upper bearing. Any help would be great. Trying to keep my coupe nice and quite. :)

To go between the coilover spring and stock 510 bearing and strut top? I think these are designed for running coilovers without camber plates: https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/510/ ... id-springs

Any updates on which ones are best without having to modify the car at all? I was thinking about getting the Ground Control ones because they have caster adjustment as well as camber adjustment.

Hey Paul.

Check out the part in this post about camber plates. It uses ground control lowers and my custom uppers and allows more caster than the GC plates and prevents the hacking of towers. I have a buddy that was interested in a set so I could do a run.

The thing that I was wondering is that all that I have seen are for coil over setups. I wanted to see if anyone makes them for the stock struts which is what I have.

We do not use needle roller bearings. we use sealed radial thrust bearing. they survive the punishment that Rally cars place on them.
the needle roller bearings are lucky to survive one event, dirt & grit take their toll.

Will your camber plates work with stock front springs without a coil over set up?
