    I thought you could get the OEM style through AMD or OER for around 80$ A pair.

    Although you would have to redrill the holes 3/4" higher, reinforce with washers, allot less than 228$.

    For my own car I added a plate to each side, a cross plate inside, drilled the new holes 3/4" higher and windowed them for front spring eye with spherical bushing. Time consuming but came out good. I've had requests to modify them for others or fabricate new stronger ones with the relocated hole but figured the UMI ones were on the way and would be out by now. Maybe Ramey will chime in as to whether they're going into production and if so a price.

    Thanks - these brackets were supposed to be the modified ones already - still waiting on UMI to have their brackets available - would like to see their price too. Great mods on those brackets Not a TA!

    I have some that look just like the ones in the first post but I think they are for a 1st gen. They are built very well

    I don't think they do this on first gens, I got the impression it won't all fit

    1st and 2nd gen are not interchangeable. In pic below red are 2nd and black are 1st.

    1st on right 2nt gen on left. Other pic is both 1st gen mounts.

    The mounts I got with leaf springs and shocks that came of a road race 2nt gen TA and he told me the mounts are for a 1st gen and he made them fit his car.
