The Kizashi top mount, in my opinion, is a bit weak by design . I wouldnt alter it. If you can wait awhile, the revised oem part 42250-57L03 can be purchased for less than $20 bucks each through fitinpart.sg the bad news is it may take 6 weeks. I recently bought the oem belt tensioner for only $67 and rear sway bar bushings for a few dollars each.
So I ended up going for the KYB SB113 's because apparently there's literally only ONE OEM 4225057L03 bumpstopper in the USA right now. I also ordered a pair of the 4225057L03's from thatgmpartsguys.com but they will take 6-8 weeks to arrive because COVID.
I also bought the KYB SB113 rear bump stoppers. I'll compare them with the OEM 4225057L03 I have currently installed from the time I had the warranty work done. I thought about reusing the OE revised bump stoppers but I've put about 65,000 miles on them, including some offroad duty. Given I now live in one of the most arid climates in the US, I don't think I'll have to worry about corrosion caused by bump stoppers, regardless of design. I got the KYB SB113 for about $14 each on RockAuto.com. I'm replacing everything related to the dampers that I can find on the aftermarket. I went with Moog front bump stoppers/sleeves given RockAuto didn't have the KYB ones in stock. I don't think the fronts matter all that much given they were not subject to the corrosion issue like the rears. I'm doing the rears myself and taking the fronts to a pro so they can reuse my springs and then do an alignment. I'm excited for the all new suspension given the car's been rather rough lately with the ride.
