2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertable Upper Strut Mount

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 07:20 PM about the 2004 Chrysler Sebring Base Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertable 2.4L

Replaced front struts.  Bought online.

They worked great for about 2 days then started to squeek when turning
wheel.  I looked at upper strut mounts.  They seem ok, but the rubber on
the inside under the large washer appears to be shaving away with little
bits of rubber.

I am concerned about this.

The shaft bolt and nut are already bottomed out.

Is the strut bearing causing my issues?

Do I need to jack the car up and losen that bolt...then lower the car to
adjust the strut?

I am at wits end.

PS they were complete strut assemblies.

You should have replace the nuts and torqued them down properly and be done with it, if they we're assemblies. Do you have the car scheduled for a alignment? You need to have this done when replacing struts and other front end suspension components. So I would have the shop that is doing your alignment check over your work to get it right vs stressing about it.
