I would advise never doing business with anyone you don't trust. Find another shop and get a second opinion. Struts do sometimes fail, even at that mileage. So do upper strut mounts, stabilizer end links and sway bar frame bushings. Diagnosis is not rocket science on these parts. You might just ask, "Do you guarantee replacing the struts will fix this noise?" If the answer is anything but yes, I would keep looking for a shop
As am driving i constantly hear a strong clunking noise, whether on a bumpy road, cracked road and over potholes. The clunking comes from the front end.
clunk over bumps. can feel it in the floor. dull thud type noise. very noticeable.
I had my tie rods replaced and it still knocks on bumps, also both tires are wearing down fast.
