  css: {

I'd recommend using y and then get the data from the gsTransform object, but if you want to use top, getBoundingClientRect() would be my choice.

i need to get different values from different tweens and getBoundingClientRect cause browser reflow, don't think it's good idea do this.

maybe tm store somewhere values that set ?

As I said, I wouldn't animate 'top'. I'd use 'y' and then all the info you need is in the transform object.
