What do strut mount kits do?
The strut mount serves as a fixing point for the top of the vehicles strut assembly to the chassis and insulates noise and vibration from the tyres and vehicle.
Why they fail?
As a vibration damping item strut mounts are subject to normal wear and tear which can be accelerated by poor road conditions such as potholes. Visual inspection of strut mounts can reveal potential failure in the form of damaged or worn component, excessive movement or corrosion. Warning signs of worn strut mounts can include clunking noises over bumps, excessive vibration, heavy steering, car wanders from side to side, uneven tyre wear.
Why replace them in pairs?
As with most steering and suspension products, to maintain vehicle balance and control it is best practice to replace left and right hand components in pairs. This help prevent a bouncy and uncomfortable ride while improving ride control. If one side requires replacement, it is likely the other side also requires replacement
