Strut top bearing
#1
Ok with replacing as above what is needed or mite be needed besides the bearing. Also where is good place to get . This is for a 2001 306 xsi 4/5 door . 
I am in Australia sydney so parts here are hard to find .

In short, anything that looks worn out!  The top mount (06 "Shock-AB Bracket" in the diagram below) can need replacing as well.  It's essentially a form of bush.  Check for any splits in the rubber between the main body and where the shock bolts through it.

Top mounts and bearings are sometimes sold together.  If you find a deal on both then may be worth considering but a decent top mount isn't cheap.

If the rod protector (03) has any damage to it then that should be replaced.  The rest should hopefully be fine.

Yep, the parts in the links you've sent look right. When you bolt in the top mount be really careful not to over-tighten the bolts. They're pretty low torque. I annoyingly stripped the threads off one a while back!

yeh, only just managed to get the strut apart and back together again with the screw type coil spring compressors, which would not do the Mondy. Have invested in a floor mounted hydraulic compressor, much safer.....
