    Strut top advice for Bilstein B14

    Good day. Bit of a noob when it comes to Abarth 500 suspension. I have a Bilstein B14 kit to go on soon. I am wondering which strut tops will be best to go with it?
    The car is used to get groceries and do HPDC track days on a tight rough track.
    Was thinking of going OEM... But, Napa list a KYB strut top (SM5685) would this work?
    I am not interested in installing adjustable camber/caster plate tops at this point.

    The kyb is an oem replacment. Should work if your kit needs oem upper mounts.

    How many miles on the original suspension? If so, I would consider reusing the stock stuff.

    Do NOT re-use the strut mounts, they deform and the bearing tolerance increases, you will get a clunk if you re-use them especially when adding more compression force (as the bilsteins will do). I currently have the KYBs and they appear to be doing well despite the road quality in Ottawa going further downhill. I have SACHS mounts lined up for when I install my freshly revalved front coilovers.
