Rubber layer for top hat of coilovers?

Post by TigWelder » Fri Nov 04, 2011 8:20 pm

I've noticed that nvh insulation material between the shock tower and the top of coilovers lowers "road noise" during everyday driving. So, I wanted to ask you SpeedTalkers if you knew any companies that offer a 1-2mm layer of a rubber-like material with the 3-bolt hole pattern pre-cut for specific cars or can make one if I send them the pattern?

1-2mm is (max) thickness I can fit between the top hat of these coilovers and the shock tower and and have nuts fully screwed onto the tophat studs. Also, does anyone know what rubber-like material would be best to sandwich in there? Thanks in advance, this forum is GREAT :D .

Neoprene would be one of the common suitable materials. Why not just cut out a set yourself from a piece of truck inner tube with a pair of sharp scissors?
