does anyone have a good way to know if your struts need replaced? I have 77K on my car and it seems to ride rougher than it used to, I assume it's the struts.

you can look for leaking oil and bounce on the bumper. At 77k it is safe to assumed the struts are atleast partially worn out.

Worn struts would not give a rough ride. Cold struts could be rough until they warm up. When the struts are worn, the car seems to float over bumps and bounce up and down. Most noticeable on the highway.
