    Hi Fabian, thanks for contacting me. I'll get back to you next weekend. Currently in Seremban.

    On another note, could u explain how the plate works (especially in terms of how it distributes the force)? I was just wondering. As the shock exerts force upwards from inside the shock tower, shouldn't the under side of the shock tower be reinforced with a plate of wider surface area rather than the top?

    Not questioning your item as many have bought it and i have found many similar items made overseas. Just trying to understand how it works.

    Thanks

    The suspension goes up and also down. the force may not be a lot on the downstroke but over long period of time it'll cause metal fatigue around the 2 nut holes. This plate act as a washer to sandwich the tower plate with the top mount to distribute the load over a larger surface instead of just the 2 bolts.

    Hope the brief explanation is clear for your understanding.
