About Strut Mounts

The Jeep strut mount is essential to the suspension system as it serves as a mounting point for your strut assemblies. The vehicle can have either two or four strut mounts depending on the suspension system in the vehicle.

The strut assemblies are situated at the front of the vehicle and are attached to the front wheels of the vehicle. They consist of a shock absorber with a piston and cylinder that contains a liquid or gas. When driving over a bump in the road, the piston moves up and down against the gas or fluid and cushioning from the bump. A spring coil also forms part of the Jeep strut mount and its aim is to keep your engine from experiencing vibrations during driving and provide you with a smooth ride.

Damage to the Jeep strut mount is through general wear and tear and it is worth knowing that if it has an issue it is recommended to also change the strut assembly attached.

Damage to a strut assembly can include excessive body roll, excessive or uneven tyre wear, tyre lift and vibrations whilst driving. Repairs should be treated as urgent.

Jeep trivia

  • Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
  • It's not something that you'll be able to find to buy, but there was a prototype of a Jeep made in 1945 that could fly. The vehicle was called the Hafner Rotabuggy, and it had blades like a helicopter.
  • One of the most expensive Jeeps in the world is the 2005 Jeep Hurricane. It's certainly not a cheap option if you're in the market for a Jeep unless, of course, you've got a spare £2 million in the bank.
  • Although they were designed for the military, it didn't take long before Jeep released a version for civilians. The CJ-2A had several features that were lacking on the military versions, such as a tailgate, a side-mounted spare tire, and an external fuel cap.
  • There is a 1953 Willys Jeep on display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, with the curators calling it "an example of automotive design in its purest form." The Jeep was added to the museum's collection in 2002.
