Default Pot hole broke my car

Need to replace strut mount, the strut has pushed up thru it. Might replace the shocks while it’s apart. Recommend replacements? Car is just a driver.

Kaplhenke Basic would be best, followed by whatever Rubber ones you like (all kinda crap) plus 15A's reinforcement plates.

It's to the point now that no matter what rubber version you buy. They won't last very long without the 15A plates helping them out.

I'm a fan of rubber strut mounts with the "15A" reinforcement plates.

For a daily driver you can buy the cheapest struts you can find and call it good.

One site to maybe buy from is carid.com; they show

FCS® 1332305R - Front Passenger Side Complete Strut Assembly for $41.13.

Considering the OP hasn't said what year, make and model car he has that Toyota strut assembly might be just what he needs. This being a Volvo forum, it's highly unlikely though.
