one more option is to take it to a steering specialist shop to diagnose the problem
the problem could be in the strut bearings ( seized ) making the suspension spring wind up on turning

Front strut replcement 2006 buick lacross


Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.

It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.

If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

Backing up made clunk noise and when dry sterring it makes a clunk noise when turning wheels left and right


You're probably going to need a shop to look at the front suspension.
With extra weight in the back, the front could have been up enough to cause something to come loose such as a strut mount. And that could happen just from old age without the extra weight.
If it is a strut mount you may not want to change it yourself since the strut has to be removed.
I would suggest getting a couple of estimates, or more. In most cases the shop will want to do a front end alignment too because of having to remove the strut.

Noise in right front wheel or dsah board


The solution is the upper strut mounting plate. To fix it you need to take out the strut tower and take apart the strut. The faulty part is the plate that has the 3 studs that actually mount the top of the strut to the frame. You may want to also plan on replacing the strut as well, when i took mine apart, the strut piston wouldnt go back into the strut body, that means its shot. Also if one side needs this done the other probably does too. The upper strut mount is about 20 bucks only from a dealer and the strut is about 60 from any auto parts store. hope this helps

Sturt and Mounts


As far as driving without having a front end alignment done AFTER the strut replacement, you should head to a shop and have a front end alignment done. You MAY notice some vibrating or tire wear if not taken care of.

Looking at your struts online, the boot comes with the struts. All you have to do is drop yours and replace with the new!
