I am pretty sure the rubber mounts are not the same. Sorry I don't have a better picture right now at work. I will try to locate my box with the old mounts in them and take a better photo for comparison.

The following from some emails FYI

If you have the 11-14 strut mounts you MUST use the Mm5CC-6. The Mm5CC-6 can use BOTH the 11-14 struts AND the 05-11 struts.

If you have the 05-10 strut mount (or the GT500 strut mount) you MUST use the Mm5CC-1. The Mm5CC-1 can ONLY use the 05-10 struts.

If you are careful, then you will have no problem with the ball bearings.

They do USUALY come apart. Just put a bunch of paper towels down over a work bench, be careful, and you will be fine. It doesn’t hurt it if it comes apart. It snaps back together very easily.

Paper towels are MUCH CHEAPER(for using OEM mounts) than a new set of GT500 upper strut mounts. The only part you would re-use, if you chose to get the GT500 mounts, is the rubber spring isolators.

Thanks,
