You will need to take the entire strut off. and you may need a spring compressor. to compress the spring so that you will not be injured. once the spring is compressed or you can squeeze with you hand take the top center nut off and just replace with new mount. You will also need to get you car for an alignment.

2005 Chrysler town and country. there is a loud bumping noise that sounds like something is loose but I can find no loose components. Has anyone an educated guess?

I believe the 2005 is the same as the 2002. The upper strut mount has a large rubber mount inside the upper strut mount. The rubber gets old and detaches from the upper mount. If you put your finger inside the upper mount and touch the top of the strut shaft with your finger, rock the car back and fourth pretty vigorously and if the center shaft moves the upper strut mount needs to be replaced.

Where You Can Get Best Quality Strut Mount and Suspension Strut Mount at Best Price in India?

Strut mount and suspension strut mount are very crucial parts of the vehicle. These are the aftermarket auto parts manufactured to replace the damaged original parts in any vehicle. Sujan Industries is the leading manufacturer and supplier of these two crucial aftermarket auto components in India and abroad. Here, all the products are long-lasting, help to extend the longevity of the auto car and also provide driver and passenger satisfaction. Strut mount is used to attach the suspension strut to the vehicle. It aids in minimizing vibration and tire noise. Its front part helps to link to the strut assembly to the car and the rear part is attached to the strut. In the middle, a rubber-like cushioning material is used. So when the car comes over any bumps during motion, the agitation pushes and pulls at the mount. The suspension strut mount absorbs the vibration and noise and the entire strut helps to minimize the noise and vibrations from spreading out. It is located at the top of the suspension strut assembly. Its main function is to mitigate vibrations and shocks. At Sujan Industries, all the auto parts are of premium quality, customized and affordable. So for any related requirements, get in touch.

What is a strut bearing plate?

The top of the strut is connected to the vehicle body through the upper strut mount, in some cases called a bearing plate. This bearing plate allows the strut to pivot as the wheels are turned. It must be flexible enough to handle slight angle changes and dampen movement of the upper end of the strut. This mount or bearing plate transfers vehicle load to the strut and spring, making the upper mount/bearing plate the load carrier and the lower ball joint the follower.I found this on the Monroe site.

What is the purpose of a torque strut mount?

Basically, the purpose of the torque strut mount is to keep the engine and transmission from vibrating excessievely. This smooths the ride, keeps the engine/transmission from excessivel stressing the engine/rtansmission mounts on the frame, and provides for a smoother ride and better drivability. Without the torque strut mount, the top of the engine would be unsupported and damage to the drive train would occur.

Can you change the front strut springs on a 1995 Hyundai Accent if you have a parts car to swap pieces?

Hi, Just finished the front strut work on my 1998 Hyundai Accent Hatchback. Step 1: Take off the tire. Step 2: Unscrew the Caliper bolt near the bottom of the caliper (Make sure you get a block for the caliper to rest on) Step 3: Unscrew the 2 Strut Bolts holding the strut in place (Before you do that, take a screwdriver and mark where the strut was sitting for when you bolt it back on) Step 4: Unscrew the upper strut nuts (3 of them and they are under the Bonnet) Step 5:Take the strut assembly out. Step 6: Use a spring compressor to compress the spring until there is no force on the upper strut mount. Step 7: Unscrew the nut holding the upper strut mount in place with your Impact and take the mount off. Step 8: Take tension off of the old spring and put a new one on using the same technique. Other than that, you reverse these steps and your done!!

Why is my rear tire rubbing on the shock absorber?

I have had that problem on my 1994 Chrysler LHS. Your strut is actually broken, the pan which holds the spring in place has poor welds and can snap. You should get a new strut.
