Do I have to replace strut mounts if I'm changing the struts?

Asked by Aug 01, 2011 at 01:04 PM about the 2005 Pontiac Sunfire Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was looking at buying just the struts for the front & rear, but 1 of the Live Chat folks on a parts site said they had to sell me the strut mount kits. I just want to know if it's absolutely necessary?

Thanks for the answer, Mike. IT just seemed like the rep was really pushing hard to sell the extra parts
