$220? really. Well I'll find out was $320 all intailes... But hey, i just rememberd. I took my car to a shop a few months ago, they checked all the joints and linkages and said they were all fine, now I don't know if the cold weather could have done a number on the joints, but i just checked them out and they seem all in good condition, no cracks in the rubber shroud. Could have something gotten under the bellow and slipped into the strut???
Thanks for the help so far
