WHY ARE STRUT MOUNTS IMPORTANT?

Strut mounts connect the strut system to the body of your vehicle. They have two main purposes; they function as vibration dampeners to reduce in-cabin noise and vibration, and when fitted on the front they provide a steering pivot point that assists suspension movement when wheels are turned. Strut mounts must be flexible enough to handle slight angle changes yet be able to transfer vehicle load to the coil springs.

THE MEVOTECH EDGE

What makes our strut mounts so great? Mevotech gives technicians the edge, by innovating every chassis component. Our engineers focus on making our parts faster and easier to install, while ensuring they are built to provide a longer service life. Employing punishing durability testing, we validate every new design to ensure you get performance you can trust.
