In most cases the sound you're describing might be caused by damaged shock mounts, tie rod ends or CV joints that are damaged. Before you decide to have the struts alone replaced, you might want to have a professional mechanic complete a car is vibrating or shaking inspection; just to be certain you're replacing the right components.
