Sorry can’t help you in the original Porsche part but I’ve just fitted techarts and replaced the top mounts with ones from Design 911.

Pretty sure eBay item 192794966601 will do the job...

Sachs pattern part, at £24 each including postage.

Cheers

...just replaced mine and prior to buying them spoke with Centre Gravity whom strongly advised against buying the cheapo ones and it's better buying them from Porsche which is what I opted to do...they said that the cheapo ones don't last very long...

I think they could be Meyle, but more than likely Porsche probably had several manufacturers doing them, circa £70 each from OPC.

PN for 2wd is 99734301801

...I recently changed mine following a broken front spring and I had adiscussion with Centergravity and they were clear that genuine Porsche mounts were the ones to buy citing issues with after market cheaper alternatives...I duly ordered mine from my local OPC in Exeter....[/code]

As far as I can tell, there are a couple of sources in the US for top mounts (such as Tarret, Vorshlag) but people usually start with arms and bushes etc., instead of top mounts.

Threads by the same person asking the same question merged.

NB: I keyed the phrase strut AND top into the Search Forum function and got a long list of results including this one that contains advice from Centre Gravity that you should only use Porsche parts.
