Hope you don't find yourself in the same dilemma (or maybe you ordered the mounts as well).
hmm that's strange. I have read multiple reviews of people using SR Springs with stock strut mounts (fingers crossed they hold together). Powerwhee is using them with no issues and I've seen a few AM videos with SR Springs added on stock mounts too.

However, I will be ordering Koni STR.Ts with new GT500 Strut mounts next. I am just on a tight budget for this build and want to do it in stages. I'd rather just add in the new Shocks and Struts and not have to deal with this part of the suspension for a while.

I'm on the fence with the Panhard Bar, but I probably will just buy it later too.
