Gotcha maybe it’s the coils that have gone badThese are NOT struts. While they LOOK like struts... they are "coil over shock assemblies".
Struts mount only to the lower control arm... and mount at the top of the body inside the engine compartment.
Coil over shocks mount to the lower control arm and the body inside the engine compartment similar to a strut... but the coilover suspension also has an upper control arm.
If you were to remove a strut from a car... not only would the front of the car be on the ground... you would not be able to steer the car... because there would be nothing to keep the wheel from flopping over.
With a coil over shock assembly... if you were to remove the shock assembly from the car... the front of the car would be on the ground... but in "theory" you could still steer the car. because the wheel is supported by an upper and lower control arm.
Hope that somewhat makes sense.
