It's 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

Great. Thanks! Please give me one moment to look into the configuration on this vehicle. Sit tight one minute... be right back...

Thanks for holding!

From what it looks like here... I think you're going to need to replace the strut itself and the strut mount assembly (comes as a kit from parts store). I've labeled what I believe will need to be replaced in this image: https://goo.gl/sD3uNY(#1-#5 will come as a "strut mount kit"). Please be kind enough to leave a rating for our Q&A using the 'stars' at the top of the page or click 'Accept' when I have answered all your questions. A 5-star rating is very much appreciated! Rating or accepting my answer does not cost you extra.

the strut and top mount. Would it be easier to but both new?

Absolutely. Definitely new, and I'd recommend doing both sides as well.

That's it. A buddy had said it was a quick fix but I didn't see how. If the strut is no replaced that will happen agian. I think.I forgot how long can I drive it like that

Correct. I'd definitely recommend the strut and mount kit. Just to be on the safe side. I wouldn't recommend driving it very far or very long. Struts play a huge role in handling and well as suspension. Definitely something to address more sooner than later.

hey ron just following up on this strut. How is it that the strut went through the strut mount was it the bearing that went out?

Sorry for the delay... I was Offline when your reply came in...

Unfortunately, no way for me to know for sure what happened here. But... very likely that the bearing wore out, yes.
