the right front side definitely needs replacing by the dodge dealership, but says they only replace the side that is bad according to the dodge dealership
also should you get a front end alignment after one strut is changed and why?

    At 2011 with a warranty? Insist on TWO struts cause after warranty, they will SELL you all FOUR!

    Unfortunately , what warranty covers (defective/failed) and what common sense tells us , are two different things.Honda dealership is same way, ONLY the defective part is covered unless there is a bulletin telling us to do otherwise.If alignment is affected by part removal/replacement , it should also be covered within the warranty repair procedure. Check your WARRANTY BOOKLET(S) that came with the vehicle!!!!!!!!!!! Most people don't , and that's what screws things up. GOOD LUCK!!!
