meyle top mounts are naff, i stick to using the febi bilstein ones and theyre only marginally better.
what i found helped was to put some rubber matting between the top mount and the flitch to her absorb the bumps endured by the top mount.
if you have lowered the suspension also check your not riding the bump stops as that will quickly ruin the top mount too when the suspension hits/rides the bump stops.
this was the reason i made my spring caps 20mm bigger so i would get a bit more shock travel because the eibach spring kit i fitted allows the shocks to bottom out and rides the bump stops.
car looks marvellous though
