Hello everyone,
I have a set on the way and I also purchased the upgraded top mounts.

My questions is, is there anything else I need or should get before the install? I've been seeing bump stops along with boots. Thanks for the info.

Caster adjustment hardware. Bolts or plates were suggested in the "Suspension refresh coming" post.

Probably want to install adjustable caster bolts as the factory ones are non-adjustable. I needed them to get the caster/tracking right after installing PPV struts. The GM ones are limited to about 0.5 degs of caster adjustment. Others I found out provide like 0.75 to 1.0 degs of adjustment but cost more. I was able to add 0.5 deg to one side and it was enough to correct the slight pull. I bought 2 in case I had to subtract some caster from the other side to get the G8 to track straight.
Are these the plates you're talking about?
