I am pretty sure my rear passenger strut needs replaced and maybe even both rear struts. There is an obvious noise every time my rear passenger wheel hits any kind of bump that tells me it is bad. However, I do not have any experience visually inspecting a strut for issues. I do not know what is normal and what is not. I know you can take them out and test them by simply pushing on them, but with the way they look I don't think this is necessary. My 2 pictures are of the rear passenger strut. The driver side looks the same without the yellow piece. I am guessing that is some kind of bushing? If so it is gone on the driver side.
