View Full Version : strut mount or strut itself?

06-08-2011, 09:54 AM
I get a creaking noise whenever I hit a decent size bump or storm drain right now with my front passenger side. I'm suspecting either the strut mount or the struts themselves but I'm leaning towards the mounts. Can anyone confirm that this sound is most likely one of these two?

I don't get any noises during normal driving and I've bounced the car up and down while parked without any noises. That's why I'm leaning towards the mount. If so, can you replace just one or should they be done in pairs? (As in both fronts at the same time.)

Any thoughts or advice is welcome. Thanks.
