does this sound like a blown strut?

Recommended Posts

This is the sequence of events just FYI:

1. One morning, I noticed oil patch near the (Aust) driver side front wheel - thought I might have spilled some oil while working on my cars.

2. Then noticed more than usual amount of vibration via the steering at speeds over 60kph - thought: hmm... maybe that's what they mean by good steering feedback.

3. Then noticed oil sitting inside the driver side front rim - got me worried at this stage.

4. Took off the rim, saw oil spray around the wheel arch in a centrifugal fashion, and oil in the strut boot and around the shining damper.

The first question is: Am I correct that the strut is blown?

I am now looking into getting replacements - most likely aftermarket coil-overs as I figured I might as well upgrade.

But I came across a few replacements that specify they are for MY98 to MY2006. I have emailed the manufacturer but got no response. The question is this: Is there any difference between the suspension/strut setups of a MY97 vs the later models or have they simply left out MY97 by mistake?

I know that there weres structural changes that resulted in reinforced suspension and allowed the use of 18 inch rims from MY98 and above, but does this affect the actual coil-over parts?
