Mount Components
When to replace mounts?
A simple rule of thumb is that if the struts or coil springs are being replaced because of age or wear, then also replace the mounts. A worn or damaged mount can cause a variety of symptoms so they should be inspected by a qualified technician. Disassembly of the entire strut & spring assembly is required to remove & replace the mount. Therefore replacing all worn components at the same time could save you from doing the work a second time.

How to tell if the mount is worn:
• Drivability symptoms may include:
• Clunking noises
• Vibration
• Loose, stiff or noisy steering
• Tire alignment
• Tire wear

Visual indication of a worn mount may be:
• Loose or damaged components
• Excessive movement
• Cracked or sagging rubber
• Corrosion
