I am guessing it is the bushing.

I just don't understand how they went bad so fast as soon as I installed the new struts.


edit: will the strut mount plate need to be replaced as well?

I'm assuming you're asking because your strut isn't centered in the hole? If that's the case, it would be the bushing. That can be replaced. The mount itself doesn't need to be.

Thanks man

Do you recommend any sites that sell polyurethane strut mount bushings for our cars?

Maybe contact Heet Toe Auto? Marcus can potentially either source something or at least point you in the right direction

meh. he gave me a good lecture when i backed out of the skunk2 camber kit group buy. emailed me why did i list if i was unsure and what if i was the deal breaker for the group buy, etc. it's not like i backed out last minute and i ruined everything. i find it unprofessional, never have i experienced such a thing w/ other companies.

but in your case, i'm glad he was able to help.

So what is the solution? The front oem bumpstops are polyurethane and could be modified and used as bushings possibly.

Did you tell your installer you're missing a nut on one of your strut towers?
