My front passengar side aluminum struts have a few dents and scratches on it, does it have to be replaced or is it safe to drive for now?
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hey there. As long as the damage is not causing the alignment to be off or leaking it should not be a problem. If the dents are causing binding of the strut, then it should be replaced. If you need someone to check it for you, then contact a mechanic to inspect the suspension and verify if it is safe to drive as is or if it needs to be replaced.
