Hear that creaking each time you hit a bump? Perhaps you hear it as well whenever you turn your steering wheel while parking? You know what makes that sound? It's none other than a worn-out strut mount bushing, and things are about to turn ugly-if they aren't already-with that particular strut mount if you don't do anything. In case you're wondering, the strut mount is what holds the tip of your shock absorber as well as the upper most coil of your spring. Now, if it weren't for the strut mount bushing, your strut mount would take a lot of beating. So much so that damage would not be limited to the mount but will affect the coil spring and the shock absorber as well. Apart from vibration, the excessive metal-to-metal contact that'll occur without a functional bushing will inflict a great deal of damage to all the parts involved. Think about it. Even if it didn't make any noise, you'd still have to shoulder the cost of replacing the damaged mount, spring and shock absorber. Are you really okay with that considering all that's needed to prevent it is a replacement bushing? Probably not. And here's one more thing. The strut mount bushing helps keep vibrations from damaging the strut bearing assembly, which makes turning the strut possible as you turn the wheel. Once the bearing goes bad, steering will be affected. You can bet on that. Order a strut mount bushing right here at PartsTrain.
