Right Front Strut Issues

Post by FoMoCo2010 » Thu Oct 03, 2019 11:22 am

Right Front Strut Issues, I'm having issues with my daughters 2010 Taurus limited, the problem is the right front strut has been replaced now 4 times. from the start i had both front struts replaced with NEW loaded Monroe struts. The right front is only lasting maybe 1-2 weeks. When you turn the wheel it sounds like your flipping a spring (hard to explain the noise) but the problem has been the lower spring rubber has twisted out of the pocket, upper bearing has went bad...each time it's one or the other. I've had her car in the shop each time and i just cant understand what they are doing that would cause this issue. Does anyone have experience with this problem....... it's starting again, when you turn the wheel you can see the strut turn and then the spring starts to turn, it's like it's in a bind.

It seems as if you are being hosed by your mechanic.

The noise you describe is much more likely from a CV joint (seems like someone had a little fun with a curb, or other such mishap)
But you should also inspect the EAPS rack for damage since there has obviously been some type of collision.
Struts don't just magically fail this way. Especially when replaced.

Do not under any circumstances return that vehicle to where you have been taking it. Find a better mechanic. There is a common misconception that dealer mechanics are the best for the type of vehicle you own. This couldn't be further from the truth. They are in fact, the worst.
Find a mechanic who has high ratings which seem genuine.

Very very few jobs require special Ford "dealer" computers, and the ones that do, can also be done at independent shops. Any shop which subscribes to Ford IDS can fix a specialty problem, though the one you are experiencing is certainly not a specialty problem.
Once again, very very few problems require Ford IDS.
