I believe they are reinforcment plates for the engine bay strut mounts. The metal the bolts go through is not that thick and holds alot of weight from the engine. These will help uphold and make sure the rear goes on straight. Im sorry but i would re-do
I dont yet know what the top of the strut looks like (thank God mine are still good!) IMO: but these look like spacers or some kind of shield if something breaks. or maybe it protects the frame if the strut comes loose???
Think about what they actually do? They dont make anything stronger!

Is it necessary to install these plates on the rear strut? I managed to forget about them when I installed the new struts. Is it a safety issue?
IMO: that triangle mount at the top doesnt look like it needs any help!

Oops. I didn't use them when I installed coil-overs. I guess it's a re-do.
