Strut was loose at top. is this finally the real cause found or a screw up from the last trip? Replaced the drivers side wheel well liner! NOTE: Previous winter a snowplow left a bank of snow When the front wheel mud flap in front made contact with the snow it also makes contact with front tire POPS right off! Instantly! Design Flaw!
