hi there

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

your suspension shouldnt hammer or feel like that anyways lol.

they would do a front end and suspension visible inspection. this will not reveal any issues with your strut mounts or struts as they are under load and require dissassembly for proper inspection

this is probably where your issue is.

i would not go with factory struts or mount and i would recommend monroe sensa-traks ( no i don not work for monroe, i just liek the ridde of them) as these will self adjust to light driving and stiffen up when reqiuired. they also have complete "quick struts" that come with everything including the spring and will reduce labour time as you do not have to dissasemble them.
let me know if i can help you further and i would be happy to assist!

please take a moment to rate me and i am always available for follow ups after rating

thanks and i appreciate postiive ratings!
