I assume this is the cause of my suspension noise?
I've had some real thumping going on in my front end for a while now. On Saturday I hit a bad pothole and there was more noise, and I pulled over into a vacant parking lot and took this photo......
That's the bottom of my driver's side strut, and the passenger side one also appears broken, though not as bad.
They shouldn't look like that, right? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but if there's a real thumping going on whenever I'm riding over anything but pristine pavement, this is probably the reason?
