Noise coming from under drivers seat-sounds like rattling-especially bad over bumpy roads, railroad tracks, etc. Told I need new struts & an alignment-very expensive.

Passenger side front strut mount failed. New struts had been installed in the front about 10,000 prior to now. Noise from front suspension when going over RR tracks or even small potholes. R/R.
I have gone through about 4 pairs of front struts, I have 244,000 miles on my 2000 S80.
