2002 Nissan Altima mileage: 92,000. How can you tell when or if it needs new struts? Are they on the front and back? Do both sets need to be replaced? What type of damage could result if not taken care of? Thanks! Looking forward to your response.

Two tests are used for checking out struts. The first one is to visually inspect for oil leaks and the second one is to check the amount of bounce to the car when going through a dip in the road. They are in the front and rear and should be replaced in pairs. No damage should result if not taken care of. You will have poor handling though.
