Q: What is left upper strut bushing support

asked by on

Is this a replacement job I can do myself

If you are referring to the strut mount or mount bushing, the job can be done but should be tackled by an experienced technician as the wrong move can cause serious injury or damage to personal property. The suspension strut assembly must be removed and disassembled while containing a large amount of spring pressure to exchange the parts. I recommend you hire an experienced technician like the ones here at YourMechanic who can inspect your suspension system and help you with any replacements that are necessary. Avoid a potentially dangerous situation by having one of our mobile experts come to you.
