What is a good type of struts for my car because whenever I hit any bumps the car sounds like the front end could fall apart? Need a little help? Had everything replaced about a year ago and the suspension sounds worse than when I put it in the shop.
Do you
have the same problem?

Can you describe the sound better? Better struts wont necessarly fix it if that isnt the problem with your vehicle.

Why you deem the struts bad?

I know that a wheel alignment is needed but the front end rattles when ever you drive over a bump.

Check the strut, and the strut bushings?

Check sway bars and other front end bushigns to make sure its tight.
