strut mount noise?
 
front end is making noise on washboard type ruts. i had previous vue where i changed struts but not top mounts and noise remained. changed mounts and noise was gone. got different vue and it has new struts. same noise. end links and bushings are good. i took out strut and see spring is new and i think mount is new. so, new strut assy's installed? hate to chase my tail here. i put strut back in. not a hard job but it is a pain if i accomplished nothing. should i get new mounts to try and fix issue?

I would. I replaced my original mounts at 80k with new Delco's when i replaced my shocks and struts. I'm kicking myself for not re-using them. The 'new" mounts started make noise after a month. Now i have to redo the job and replace the mounts. Hope the new set last longer.

this is the stuff of nightmares for me. you'd expect the Delco's to be flawless. is there any chance they were counterfeit?
