Exclamation 2005 mustang v6 problems with struts?

Everytime I make a sharp turn right or left I hear a loud clicking noise. I had pep boys check it out and after everything they said it would cost about 1000 dollars. Has anyone else had this problem and had it done cheaper? Does anyone know where i can buy these parts for cheap? Thanks

Sounds like it could be a problem with the strut mounts popping. Not nearly a $1000 fix.

you can get the gt takeoff shocks and struts cheap,,,i bought the strut mounts from fords,20-30 each. you can get a coil spring compressor set for under 20.00 for the struts at harbor freight and do it your self for free. wont beat that price

All depends on what the real problem is. Bad strut mount or a bad strut. Tough to diagnose on here. What did Pep Boys say it needed?

Unless the strut is leaking/damaged, you can just replace the mounts.

to replace the strut mounts, you need the coil compressor anyway. it would only take 2 minutes to just replace the strut at the same time. the gt struts make the v6 just a tiny tad stiffer, but i like it. and they are cheap. if you dont replace the struts( like that guy said, i replace mine by 50k, leaking or not, so it would be a wise move, since its the same install job anyway) you could replace just the strut mount bearings for about 60.00 plus the spring tool, and a couple hours labor. that guy is way high on the price, but maybe thats what a shop charges.

It should take care of it. Service manual calls for 2 hours of labor, so figure about $200 plus parts.
