Has anyone tested this top mount for Beta?

Yes, don't bother with it.  I used these on my first Hawk Stratos, which use the Beta front top mounts on the rear suspension. They were very very slow arriving (9 weeks) then after fitting they fell apart within 6 months, and that Hawk Stratos wasn't my daily driver!!

Money wasted in my opinion and I'd not use Compbrake again myself.

Thanks, I will look for something else  Smiley

I am looking for parts to rebuild my top mounts on my white -83 VX and -84 Vx, both Coupe's.
Was thinking of camper/caster adjustable top mounts from Escort Mk 1/2 but its quite expensive.
The bearings has gone......also the rubber sealing.
Managed to assemble two tops for my S1 Coupe, but one bearing is not good.

Now I have mounted LBP bushes, inner tracking arm bush, Spax shocks and uprated springs, all from LBP. Must say I am very happy with all the parts and everything works very well...ready for Scandinavian Lancia meeting in Sweden

Same as Matt, i've tried these, well tried to, bought them, took an age to arrive, finally came to put on car and found out they don't even fit anyway! Sent photo's and measurements along with correct dimensions, they didn't want to know and eventually refunded me once i'd sent them back.
They look to have great products, shame they don't fit....
