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

the mcpherson strut tuns in steps instead of a continueos motion. Is the mount bearing shot or is the strut bent?

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.

IF AGE INDICATES REPLACEMENT THEN DO BOTH AT ONE TIME, WHICH I THINK IT DOES

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
