    Bearings in strut mount?

    Hi there,


    I'm looking to get some strut mounts. I've never taken apart the suspension before. Does a stock 2006 Magnum R/T suspension have bearings in the strut mount? I am asking because I am considering the Moog strut mounts, but there is a note on RockAuto saying that it excludes bearings.


    Pic for reference:



    Thanks,

    Chris.

    I don't believe there are bearings like roller bearings, but there is a rubber isolator and a steel sleeve inside it that the strut shaft goes through and then you put the nut on it. The rubber can wear out and cause noise over bumps.

    Thanks for confirming. I'll be replacing the rubber isolators as well. I just couldn't tell from the parts manual whether a bearing was part of the strut mount. I'm learning on the fly...

    Sure thing...happy to help. You can just buy the part in the picture in your first post...it is the "bearing" and mount all in one...I could have been a little more concise when I used "rubber isolator"...which normally means the rubber "spacer" between the strut cap (in your picture) and the coil spring. I have yet to see one of those go bad.
