Does the raceland kit come with new upper strut mounts and bearings? or will I have to order new ones. I dont have the tools to compress my old suspension to get the parts

Get new ones, it doesn't come with them. Don't reuse the old ones. The bushings will be pretty screwed and the bearings will fall apart.

Yes and No, all depends on the pipe placement and what strut bar. I've seen some fit and not fit, for example. The ecstuning strut bar, I had to custom fab it to make it work.

Ok. What are the best strut bearings and mounts?

Will I need the tool to compress the spring if using new ones? Im brand new to suspension parts I always did engine mods :p
