A suspension part has come loose or is worn out. Check the top strut mounts under the hood. There may be a rubber plug to remove to see the top mounting plate. The three nuts around the perimeter of the strut plate are the mounting nuts, not the larger center nut-leave that one alone-it is for keeping the strut from coming apart.
If that mount is good, check for a broken coil spring around the strut.
Keep looking for the problem. If the tire leans out that bad, you should be able to spot the problem. Raise the wheel off the ground (recommend jack stands or blocks so it won't slip off the jack), grasp the wheel and shake it back and forth while watching for looseness or noise on the suspension parts connecting to the wheel hub at top and bottom- the upper and lower control arms and the strut connection.
Good luck.

My 2002 toyota avalon has a noise in the rear of the car, it sounds like something is hitting to under side of the car when i go over a bump in the road at slow speeds. i have tried to see if the exhaust...


Hello. Welcome to FIxYa.

Your noise is most likely worn out 'rear strut support mounts'.

On top of the rear struts, there is a metal plate that locates the top of the strut to the body, Inside this plate is a centering device that holds the top of the strut vertically secure. As the mount wears, the strut is no longer vertically secure, and allow the tip if the strut to hit the inside edge of the metal plate.

We change these parts quite often, this is a very common occurance, and is easily rectified.

What you will need to do: Have a qualified technican remove the rear strut assemblies, disassemble them, and replace the top support mounts.

We do not recommend that you try this yourself, if you do not have the required experience, and the necessary tool (a strut coil-spring compresser). If you try to remove the coil spring from the strut assembly without the proper tools, you could very well injure yourself. The coil spring is under a significent amount of tension.

This is a job best left to a professional machanic who has the proper tools.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

When I open the hood of my 2000 tdi beetle, and look at the upper front strut mounts, the cone around the strut bolt is loose on both sides. I had both struts replaced 2yrs ago. I just had my tires...


the cone naturally has some clearance between the body. on the underside of what you see is a rubber bushing called the 'upper strut mount' these are a commonly replaced item. you need a spring compresser to get em out.

Strut mounting kit


I just did that a few weeks agon on my daughter's 2004 Stratus Sedan. Same passenger side rear! The original factory part was **** and fell to pieces. The new parts are greatly improved. Buy two (2) because you will need one for the other side in the near future.

You will need a coil spring compressor for this job, some metric wrenches/sockets, and something to hold the top stud of the Strut when you loosen the nuts. I think the nuts inside the trunk are 15 mm and the big one at the bottom of the strut is 18 mm.

Check out moparpartsamerica.com/schematics/p/pm01495.gif for a great exploded view of the entire strut top to bottom. Go to the Auto Zone Web site and look up your struts and print the inspection and repair/replacement topics. Check the strut closely before you decide to put it back in, particularly if they have a lot of miles on them. I plan to replace all four struts next summer on my daughter's car.

I reused the old strut, but you need to decide if it is a good time to put new struts on for yourself. This would be a great time to do it if you need them. Look closely at the rubber bushings at the top of the strut and buy a new set if they are not really solid. I bought new ones when I did it.

Start inside the trunk by pulling back the trunk liner to expose the top of the strut and mounting bolts for the broken bracket. Spray all the nuts/bolts at top and bottom of the strut with liquid wrench a few times. Remove the two (2) outside nuts first. You will need a special socket to hold the end of the strut stud while you turn the nut off. I used a big pair of Vice Grips on the flats, but use the socket if you can get one.

That big bolt & nut that attaches the bottom of the strut will take some effort to remove. Use the coil spring compressor to take the load off that bolt before you try to remove it. The suspension component to the left of that bolt will need to be unbolted and lowered for the strut bolt to be removed. Good Luck!
