    New top mounts - no difference

    Hi! Im new to this forum and this is my first post here! I've previosly browsed around looking for good info, and i must say i like this forum!

    So to the business...
    I was looking to sort out the hit-pot-hole-clunkt noise, and have been changeing bushing all around, i.e. LCR, bottom engine mount and strut top mounts.

    All poly except top mounts, which are the ebay febi ones: VW Golf Mk4 Est 08/99-10/99 1.9TDi 110 Febi Strut Top Mounting 1J0412331CS1 | eBay

    and even after doing that, my struts are still doing this


    I believe ive got the stock shocks and slightly lower springs. Is it suppose to be like this or did i do something wrong?

    Thanks in advance!

    They all look like that.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    It's not suppose to sit flush with the strut top, that looks fine to me. Knackered ones have an even bigger gap!
