Strut mountings

Strut mountings

The strut mount is located on the top of the strut assembly and is used to provide a pivot point and mounting location for the strut. The strut mount is used on cars equipped with Macpherson type struts, accounting for over 70% of cars in the world market, particularly on smaller compact cars. The strut mount is normally made of rubber and has a strut bearing in the centre that allows the strut to turn right to left with the steering.

The strut mounts should always be replaced when replacing the strut assembly as the strut mount and bearing hold the whole weight of the vehicle, putting them under extreme pressure. Sudden failure of this assembly can have dramatic and dangerous consequences.

Strut mounts play a vital role in: handling, alignment, braking and steering.The mount attaches the suspension strut to the vehicle; one side is fastened to the vehicle, the other to the strut. In the middle is insulating rubber. As the vehicle moves, the up and down impact pushes and pulls at the mount. The mount cushions impact, to reduce the vibration and noise that would otherwise transmit to the vehicle. 
During the year, our cars have to deal with all types of weather conditions. The strut mounts and bearings have a particularly arduous time and are subjected to ice, salt spray and excessive wear due to holed and uneven road surfaces. Most of the time, the damage caused by extreme conditions is not noticed until a few months later when it is picked up by
failing an MOT test, or the driver notices knocking noises when driving over bumps in the road or ‘notchiness’ and heaviness in the steering when turning.
