Q: Front end high. 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

asked by on

Put the car on jackstands now on any type of acceleration the front in lifts up and the only way to get it to regular height is turning the steering wheel left and right or reversing my first thought was bent or blown struts

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there. This sounds like you do have struts that are binding and not returning to normal heights after it extends. This would likely require the struts to be replaced in order to be corrected.
