Top Strut Mount Front Axle (Alfa 147/156/GT)
Top mountings are a hidden suspension component but are just as vital as shock absorbers and coil springs.
Many top mountings have a bearing which the suspension assembly pivots on they also help absorb road vibrations being transmitted through steering components to the driver.
These mountings can collapse, split or perish. As with shock absorbers and springs they should be replaced together in pairs.
