2001 Chrysler 300 • 120,343 miles

Car is on its 3rd set of Mopar struts in a year. Repair man says it is faulty shocks. The shock plate keeps separating from the shock on the front right and left sides. Mechanic says all corresponding parts are okay in the front end of card. Mechanicalso says axle, spindle and transaxle are okay. I also recently replaced the tires, tie rods and ball joints. What could be causing the struts to break apart? Car steers and handles okay. I thought new shocks would make the car ride like new. However, the ride is okay but not like a new car ride.
