    Thank you both for the great information. My 1999 Lexus RX300 has over 150,000 miles on it already, I think it is time to change the struts. Do you agree? Do you think I need to spend the money now? Any recommendation on where is a good place in the San Jose, CA area that can do the job professionally and not so expensive?

    How much did you pay for the replacement of the strut mounts? I heard the similar noise every morning when I drove off the garage.

Noise is not a danger, but if the car starts to bounce allot then it becomes a safety issue, at that point the struts have to be replaced, they must be done in pairs only..

Chrysler 300 sounds like bottom falling out on left front when hitting bump. What could this be?

If it made the noise before, its not the parts you had installed.
My first guess would be a bad ball joint.

Every time i drive into a hole my car will make this big noise just like i head iron

does it come from one of the front wheels?passenger side or driverside front?you may have a bad ball joint on one of those front ball could also be a bad strut on either front side. only an alighment can tell if it's a a bad control arm bushing or an 'a' frame bushing going bad. depending on how many miles your car has on it, and how rough it's been driven will determine the bushing life you have on 'a' frame bushings or the struts life left. i would start with the struts 1st. if you push up and dowm on the hood of your car, does it bounce up and down more than once? thats a good test for struts. if it bounces u good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.comp and down say 3 times after pushing it doen once, the struts bad.good luck and thank you for choosing

I own a 2003 RX 300 and ws told that I needed new struts in the front. However, I only have 56,000 miles on the vehicle. Could this be true?

Here is how to tell if you have bad strut on ANY car. Go to the corner of the car with the suspected bad strut. Start pushing down on the car to get it moving up and down. Keep pushing to get it moving up and down pretty good and then push down one last time and stop. If the struts are good, your car will bounce up then down and then stop. If it keep moving more than that, the struts are bad.
