    'Spring' noise when turning

    Hey guys. I've had a problem that seems to be getting progressively worse. (Which I would expect.)

    It has to do with the front end. Whenever I turn I get a spring-like noise out of the passenger front. I was thinking maybe it was a strut mount or spring related issue. Am I on the right track? The cv boot looks good and the hub assembly and outer tie rods have been replaced.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Basscatt.

    Never attempted to change struts on my own. But due to the price, have been contemplating it. Any real tricks or is it basic "parts" replacing?

    No "tricks", but you will need a spring compressor.

    I'm having the same issues... good luck doing the job and let us know how it goes. When I first asked google they said it was the cv joint. I knew that wasn't right. So struts it is soon for me also.


    But the question I have is I researched online and people have been saying how stiff the feel is. Does anybody here have complaints about the ride quality of the monroe quick struts?
