So I'm noticing quite a bit of rust on my strut and near the mounts, and I was thinking about doing this myself. So when I dig into the service manual, and possibly ordering parts, I found a not so nice problem.
Apparently there are 2 type of strut mount, and when I brought the car in to a dealer, gave them the VIN, they said the system didn't offer to tell them which exact one is needed.
Is there a way to tell which one is which without actually taking the shock out?
Toyota Parts Direct diagram shows Type A and Type B, and there is a hole near the front bolt, which suggests that it's a Type B. But I would like a second opinion.
