old strut vs. new strut
I changed the struts on my 2000 Maxima because one of them had completely
failed. This was the good one which still had oil in it; the bad one made
horrible scratching noises and clanked around.

Difference between Shocks and Struts
Pat Goss of MotorWeek explains the differences between shocks and struts.
He shows how to test for shocks and struts that are completely worn out and
should have been replaced long ago. Once a car fails the bounce test, its
braking and handling have already been compromised and there has been
unnecessary wear on other suspension, steering and brake parts.
Problems Caused by Worn Out Struts - Subaru Impreza RB5
Struts are one of the most important parts of a vehicle's suspension. They
ensure a smooth ride over bumps and surface imperfections and isolate
occupants of the car from the road. Struts also ensure the car handles well
around corners and keeps the car stable under acceleration and braking.
Worn out struts can cause poor handling. When struts become worn beyond
their useful life, they will not control the weight of the car as well
during cornering. The result is increased body roll (the tipping motion of
the vehicle) during cornering and a less stable feeling from the suspension
and steering. If the struts are worn enough, this can be potentially
dangerous, as the vehicle will not be as stable and easy to control as
Clunking and Banging
Worn out struts may also cause the suspension to clunk and bang. If the
struts are blown out from excessive use, they may rattle and clunk during
driving. This will become more pronounced over bumpy sections of road.

tire, a blinking light or an empty fuel gauge, what are the signs you
should look for?
