Last week I hit a deer in my 2007 Acadia it had to have the bumper and grill assembly replaced. I have since got it back from the repair shop and now the front end bounces as you drive down the road, at any speed. Repair shop tells insurance co. that the struts need replaced and that there is no way this could happen from an accident. It has 70k on it and has never had this issue until th deer accident could this be the struts or something else ?

Depends on the depth and extent of the accident. I would find it hard to understand if you didn't not have more than superficial parts replaced how the suspension is affected, but anything is possible. You can get a local second opinion to help your cause.

I had to have my struts replace because of the same problem. It worked like a charm!
...s the Internal Travel Stop wearing out and the only way to fix this problem is to put on a new front end suspension. Does anyone have any experience with this problem or fix?
