Question 300TE strut mounts

Hi,

I have attached a picture of the strut mount on my 1993 300TE. Please take a quick look at the top of the pic, I have drawn two arrows that point to the "wings" of the strut mount. When there is weight on the suspension, these two wings are touching each other. If I take the weight off the suspension these wings seperate by about a half inch. Is this indicative of bad strut mounts? I have an annoying rattle coming from the front end and cannot isolate it. Everything else on the front end is tight as a drum.

Thanks,
Tom

Sorry - I can't tell much from your pic. Are you sure the lower "wing" is not just a part of the dust boot?
