Wow. I'm sorry to hear about your house. I hope no one got hurt.

It sounds like you need the parts for the mounts and the upper spring seats (the "top cup for the springs"). The mounts are actually composed of a number of pieces, including several rubber bushings and bearings in the front, but you can buy the whole mount at auto shops.

I've uploaded an excerpt from the B14 Factory Service Manual so you can see exactly what you need to get. It contains exploded diagrams of the B14 front and rear suspension systems. You can download it in PDF format here:

Suspension Diagrams from the B14 FSM

Good luck. I hope things turn out ok with your house and everything.

I dont know much about the B14 suspension set up but I just wanted to say I'm sorry about the fire. Stuff like that is never fun. :( I hope no one got hurt.
