Thursday, December 05, 2019
Strut mountings are important components within a suspension system and have a vital role to play when it comes to absorbing impacts, insulating the vehicle body and reducing road noise. Particularly after use on poor road surfaces, the strut mounting can be prone to failure and a high quality replacement is required.

The failure or seizure of a strut mounting will result in a creaking or grinding noise from the suspension. This can lead to the bearing tearing the rubber apart in the mounting. The rubber itself can also deteriorate with age, leading to reduced driving comfort due to increased noise. Failure brings on a feeling of tight steering or excess play, unstable handling, and reduced driving and braking safety.
