    Default Strut top nut

    Hi eveyone.After getting the clunkin twanging noise syndrome on my front o/s I got my strut apart and greased up the bearing and gave it all a good clean out.vauxhall said they had replaced the bearing when they changed a faulty strut on n/s few weeks earlier but noise and spring jumping was still there.the noise is gone now(fingers crossed)but i noticed something i aint sure about.when i steer left and right lock to lock I can see the top nut of the strut move slightly.it doesnt spin.the other side does the same and also the actual metal top mount on both sides has slight movement.shoul they be solid and not move at all while steering.any help from you guys apreciated.

    I think they should move. So they are OK.

    the noise is gone but ime getting a kind of slight wobble and sometimes the steering kind of twitches when going round corner.does your top mount and strut nut move when steering.on the old vectras and astras the mounts look solid and only the strut and spring move round.is this normal on all vectras,
