Front End noise 2005 Ion

02-08-2019, 04:43 PM

I have a 2005 Ion sedan, 80K miles great little car. Recently I am getting a grinding or metallic rubbing noise from the front when I accelerate or brake. It's almost like something has rusted as is rubbing. I thought it might be the struts but there is no bounce to the front end like there normally is with bad struts.

I asked a friend who has had Saturns before and he said it sounds more like the strut mount than the strut itself.

If it is the mount should I get the entire assembly replaced when they change the mount? (Strut and strut mount)
