I have a 01 GT that I just bought used. I didn't catch it on the test drive, but now both sides are knocking and creaking over bumps in the road at low speeds. The car has 60,ooo on it and I am beginning to think the struts are shot. The car doesn't rock and roll if I push it up and down and I don't hear it while rocking it in the driveway, but cruising down the road at 25 or 30 is a whole new story. I have been under it all night, and the only thing I hear is a little noise from the steerting while working it back and forth when it is not running. Is 60000 the normal life of a strut? I wonder because I had a 99 and put 90 K 0n it and never had a problem.

Make sure you replace the strut bearing plates as well if your change out the struts as that is the most likely cause.
