Was working on a friend's exhaust last night (1995 Monte Carlo) and discovered a big problem. What he thought was a noisy strut turned out to be the sheet metal at the top of the strut tower tearing away around the strut mount. The body has rusted and separated around the outside of the strut mount, and a crack is working it's way inboard to complete the job.
Has anyone fixed this type of problem on a w-body? Would swapping to a monoleaf rear suspension help? Do they make patch kits similar to those available for Chrysler minivans?
