Tein makes (or made) a subaru top mount that had a 'dome' to bring the bearing up almost 1". Not sure if they were for lowering cars and retaining bump or for getting more bump out of gravel cars...

Got a better photo for this....


Looks like Tein stopped making "lowering camber plates" and what is on the market now doesn't look like it would stand up.

That is not what it is....

It is from a Subaru GDA/GDF - TEIN HG Gravel coil over kit. The top mount is special order from Japan.

Thanks wish you would have posted that with your picture. Do you have an actual part number?

I got a response from TEIN the other day. No part number but I am sure they can get you the right thing.

I don't suppose they gave you a price or I could get the contact info regarding them so that there's some continuity in conversation instead of calling and starting anew with someone else?
Thanks

Wonder what these look like underneath and if a guy could make them work?
