All right, so you know how I said that rear strut mounts help with shock absorption? Well, when they’re not doing their job, then you end up with a car that isn’t absorbing as much shock as it should. And, as a result, you have some excess vibrations. If one of your car’s rear strut mounts fails, then you’ll notice your car vibrating a bit, and altogether not feeling nearly as stable and comfortable as it usually does.
Here’s your first lesson about cars: They shouldn’t make any weird noises. If one of your rear strut mounts breaks, the struts may rattle around a bit due to being loose. That will result in a clunking noise when you drive over a bump or a hole in the road.
A damaged rear strut mount will issues to both your suspension and your steering. That, in turn, will cause alignment problems in your car. A car that isn’t properly aligned will put excess stress on some tires, which will lead to abnormal wear and tear. That should be visibly noticeable. Even if you don’t know too much about cars, you should still get in the habit of checking out your tires. Look for low pressure, excessive wear, or bubbles. And look to see if one side is more worn out than the other. If it is, you may have an alignment issue. That might be the result of rear strut mount damage.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
It’s safe to drive your car short distances even if you need a rear strut mount replaced. But the more you drive on it, the more it will put excess pressure on your suspension, steering system, and tires. That leads to bigger issues, which leads to more costly repairs, which leads to…I mean, you get where I’m going, right?
