2006 Toyota Sienna Q&A

2006 Toyota Sienna Question: why does the front driver strut stutter while turning the steering wheel?

the mcpherson strut tuns in steps instead of a continueos motion. Is the mount bearing shot or is the strut bent? -
Answer 1
POSS BAD STRUT INSULATOR ON THE TOP IS WORN OUT -
Comment 1
Should I go for an entire new strut or just the upper bearing mount? They usually want to do both front struts if I decide to have them replaced. -
Comment 2
IF AGE INDICATES REPLACEMENT THEN DO BOTH AT ONE TIME, WHICH I THINK IT DOES -
Answer 2
Always replace both side, have your front end check by a licence tech. I would recommend quick struts come with everything, new springs and upper bearings. The cost of the struts are more but the labour is less -
