Asked by Nov 21, 2013 at 05:54 PM about the 2002 Dodge Stratus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A week ago, a mechanic I know told me I needed to replace my struts and strut mount . I've found the struts for my car but not the strut mount itself. None of the chain auto parts stores and stores online carry the strut mounts What did come up was a strut mounting kit with a like a cone shaped rubber/plastic piece and looks like two washers about 2 to 4 inches across. Also, a strut mount did come up but it was for the Stratus coupe. Yesterday, I found an auto parts website that had something called a shock bracket (Looks way different from the strut mount for the coupe) and there was an diagram with the bracket along with the strut, etc. The price of the strut mount was $211.00 each. My opinion (I'm not an mechanic), the bracket shown in the diagram looks study and can last a lifetime, something you don't replace unless you get into an accident. Has anyone replaced struts along with the strut mounting kit, without replacing the shock bracket? Personally, I don't want to pay over $400.00. unless I have to.

twenty dollars and forty-eight cents too much?~

if the butyl-rubber parts have degraded would look to summitracing for an all synthetic version~

That part is a rear strut mount. I need a front strut mount. Here's an diagram I got off chryslerparts.net: http://www.partswebsite.com//stores/partsimages/partsP/PM01260.gif I couldn't post the part description, price, etc. from the website, I've manage to get the diagram. On the diagram, "number 12" is the shock bracket I mentioned in my first post.
