Default We replaced the struts on our 2001 Acura MDX - we have a rattle on the right side.Sears says we...

...need a casing? Struts are a month old. Left side makes no noise, right side rattles like crazy. Salesman said we needed a casing or container or something else that we didn't buy before. It just sounds fishy to me. It doesn't feel like I have a shock absorber on that side at all. Does this sound familiar?

Unless the mounting brackets are broken or damage that is the only thing I can think of. Casings or containers? I would want some more clarification, they does seem odd! Get a written estimate and take it to another car repair show for a second opinion..

What are you doing taking your acura to Sears? Sure acura dealerships arn't cheap, but thats why you go to the Honda dealership instead. Sounds like a joint problem. But for a 6 year old car that normally wouldn't be an issue...
