no you do not! this is a congame! unless your struts do not return to full ride height in one two two bounces when you push on the front of your hood you do not need to replace them. they wear out just like shocks

It could be several things.
1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.
Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

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.
