Another Broken Strut

January 11th, 2017

Another Broken Strut but this one knocked off a main brake fluid hose from Master Cylinder Reservoir to the Master Cylinder causing NO Brakes!  This was on a 1998 Toyota Sienna with 200k miles. The Top of the Strut pushed through the strut mount due to excessive rust and forced the brake hose off the master cylinder. All strut and shock manufactures recommend them replaced every 75,000 miles. Please don't wait. This customer got very lucky! No Brakes! Very Scary...
