    No they don't need pressed they just go between the strut body and strut mount.

    i'm building my own coilover setup with sleeves, I've got a brand new set of kyb gr2's and got monroe strut mounts, put the sleeves and mounts in but the thrust bearing just falls down. I looked online and I need the upper spring seat.

    Now I really don't want to have to buy more parts to complete this, and I also don't want to have to tear apart my current stock stuff just for this spring seat. What should I do?

    When I bought my cheap eBay sleeves I had to make a set of upper spring seats out of 1/4 inch plate steel.
