I agree. After I changed my struts along with the upper bearing plate and mount, all of my suspension clunks are gone. Huge difference!

Croth I've learned after working on thousands vehicles to do it once, and do it right. I figured I could get away with one, but no the one time I try to cut one corner it comes back to bite me. UGH-LOL

Re: Shock absorber (struts) question?

Shocks changed by a former Jeep dealer and thumping/banging reduced substantially. Only hear something when going over another pot hole of which we have a lot around us.

Vehicle feels much better to drive. A Pair cost me 162 off eBay plus 150 for fitting as against Jeep dealer price of nearly 600! The dealer from whom we bought the vehicle in September last year contributed 100 towards cost of replacement.
