I was at a Canadian tire 2 weeks ago and he wanted to replace my front struts. I told told him the front end was just replaced by a very good sh ope. And that insurance paid. I'd think if they felt the struts were going the would have replaced them. I asked him why he thought this and he pointed to a very small patch od dirt and oil right where the top and bottom of shock join. All I know is the car drives great and handel like a dream. What do you think just one more CANADIAN tire story? How can I tell if I need to replace them.
Thanks

Usually if the strut is bad it leaks and then the dirt will collect and is a good indicator to have the vehicle checked.

Best way to check is bounce the passanger or driver side vehicle, if the car stops bouncing and returns to original ride height when you stop bouncing and step back it is good, if it continues to bounce or sits lower then when started then suspect they are bad.
