I'm replacing my strut mount bearings again 3 years later since they creaked when I turned the wheel. But the strut mount bushings look a little suspect. Compared to photos of new strut mount bushings, these look collapsed to me. What does everyone think?
I realize you've already come to the conclusion these needs replaced but you have another issue besides being collapsed. The rubber is separating or has already separated from the round metal piece in the middle. Usually when I've seen it, there is tearing, this almost looks like manufacturer defect to me. Personally, I like the Whiteline products but I've never heard of any complaints about the Super Pros.
