RK Sport coil kit. bearings????
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 5:23 PM
I have this RX Sport kit im looking to install this weekend.

http://www.rksport.com/pdf/02032515.pdf

Looks like the bearings and spacers from image 13/14 are not with this used kit. My question is do i NEED these bearings??? This is my first coilover install and Im unsure of how to move forward. If I do need these where can I find a set??

Thanks in advance..

Yes you do need them. Id just try at a automotive parts place. They are called thrust bearings and you will need the matching races.

You aren't going to get them at Advance or Autozone. Go to NAPA or some other higher end parts store. You'd be even better off at a privately run place.

Will there be thrust bearings present when I remove my OEM struts?

I dont think so. They will have bearing plates.

No there will not. You have to buy them if the coilovers you bought dont have them. If you bought them new from Rk Sport contact them. Another option is to contact Ground Control as they are the exact same coilover they sell and get the part of atleast the information you need to match up that part at a different source. But im sure Ground Control will sell the parts you need.
