Strut Replacement in Atlanta

Post by momsTaurus »

Hey friends,
New member here. I have a 2012 Taurus with about 63,000 miles. I bought it for mom new and she didn't drive it much and I have it now that she has passed. Anyway, the front right struct is making noises especially speed bumps. My general feeling is that the ride quality isn't as good as it used to be but wouldn't think that the front struts would be going back with the lower mileage. Could be wrong though, especially since the roads in Atlanta are awful! I prefer not to go to the dealer. They are ridiculously expensive and not sure they necessarily give you the best service. Any recommendations on a shop and also a brand recommendation?

Thanks,
Channing

OEM. Specifically do not by aftermarket brands for these particular struts.

The mounting bolts on them also snap very easily. It's something any mechanic needs to watch out for no matter how experienced they are. Unless of course he has experience working with these particular struts, and only them.
