Top Mounts

Minimize road surface excitations and support vehicle stability and road holding

Rubber compound and shape tuned to required stiffness characteristic

Top mounts connect wheel suspensions with the chassis and, together with coil or air springs, minimize a large part of road surface excitation so that unwanted chassis vibrations do not reach the passengers. Top mounts and spring seats also perform a damping function and are essential to vehicle stability and road holding, and their rubber compound and shape can be precisely modified to the required stiffness characteristics.

By providing a perfect fit to the chassis, the stamped steel housing with its formed fasteners is able to absorb high loads. Top mounts and spring seats are designed to ensure that passengers are protected from sudden shock inputs caused by driving over bumps, obstacles and potholes. They also help to isolate tire noise.

The cost-efficient and compact design provides packaging flexibility for manufacturers.

Vibracoustic’s portfolio of top mounts ranges from conventional rubber to polyurethane top mounts and top mounts with spring aids or jounce bumpers, and also includes single, double and triple path top mounts. We provide the design of the top mount, housing, spring seat, jounce bumper and dust boot from one source to ensure maximum performance and cost efficiency.
