Tried googling this but couldn't find the answer, so here goes..
As said above - top bit of the strut mounting is protruding from the turret. If i jack the car up it drops to rest on the turret again. I don't think it's always been like this but maybe it has and I never noticed!
So.. is this normal or has something broken? Both the front mounts are doing the same thing which makes me hopeful that i just never noticed before but wanted to be sure.
