RE: Front suspension clunking noise

Do the Steeda upper strut mounts have their own rubber mount or did you use the rubberring from the oem strut mounts? I heard someone who had aftermarket mounts used the oem rubber ring on their new...

TSB 07-18-2

RE: Just curious how many of us are "old coots"

RE: 2007 Front Suspension Thunking Noise

Does the installation of these new strut mounts require that the front end be re-aligned? I did not see any indication of that procedure on grampa_stang's work order that he posted.
