Can anyone recommend a good place to get TRD or other top mounts?
I have had a look and the one place that I have found lists the TRD ones as discontinued :(

AFAIK TRD top mounts haven't been available for some time. If you don't want to fit OEM top mounts I believe Cusco and BC adjustable top mounts are still available.

Are the TRD top mounts known to be resilient for a long time? Went through my receipts yesterday and they are listed.

Trd top mounts have indeed been discontinued for years.
Some Toyota top mounts are also discontinued/ short stock on shelf.
Other non genuine parts I've tried are IMHO less than ideal even if from a reputable brand such as febi ( (bilstein) with very soft rubber and poor steel protection. Kyb (kayaba) used to make them for oem and the pattern kyb stuff I've previously bought was good but I can't find a source for then now.

The trd top mounts are good quality and I'd expect 70-100k miles life before the front bearings develops any slop. The rears have no moving parts so will only suffer rubber ageing issues.

I went to the upper supports of the DGR, the steering is excellent, but it is very hard and loud. Inside, I heard as shock absorbers operate.
Here are my top mounts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... FIxbFpPVjQ

Cheers JP, good to know that they are future proofed for the time being. Also have receipts for the KYB shocks and TRD springs. Need to workout the time frame and mileage as well from this to determine expected life. Should help me establish the superstrut life as well. Stacks of receipts leading up to the previous owner, then a 2 year gap from everything. A real shame really, must have dropped in to bargain car buyer money at that point.

I would consider them mounts 202 if they fit standard shocks/springs combo and not just coilovers.
