    no it shouldnt ...you have the rubber piece on the strut and than you have the upper control arm there too...it is just about impossible for the strut shaft to go up too far.......or am i not understanding ?

    I'm starting to get the feeling you have a sway bar or possibly a wheel bearing issue. The damper should never come into contact with the chassis. Might try checking your inboard tie-rod ends too..

    Figured out what it was today what a pain in my ass...first both strut mounts were bad so i ordered two from autozone. i get my car all apart in go to put the right in and had no right mount they gave me two left ones!!! Come on now!!! Next i go put the left on and it wont line up and when i finally got it in the bolts were turning so it was not working wow after all that really? So i got two from craigslist that were in good shape for 40 bucks but anyways its finally done. THANK GOD!!!!!!! I'll post some pictures of it tomorrow i gotta get to sleep i need to get up in 4 hrs for work. haha like this job wasnt enough work
