2004 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
Just had new struts put all around. Car bobs 3 to 4 times after hitting bump or depression, also potholes have just become harder and loud. I am starting to think the mechanic put in used parts. Do I have reason to be concerned?
It is questionable for all 4 new struts to rebonce 3 or 4 time when hitting a bump.
Confirm the rebounce test: Stand in front of your car.
Put your both hands on the hood.
Remove your hands from the hood as you observe the rebounce test
it should only be a bounce(travel up and stay there)
if there is rebounce, there is problem with the job done.
This test can be done in the front and back ( from the truck)
