I was told my driver's side strut plate bushings have worn out.
My question is do you have to buy the complete strut or can you just buy the strut plate..thanks

Rockauto $12.07 for the upper strut mount.
I looked on rock auto and couldn't determine which one was for a 2012 cts-v coupe. Thanks
Will be the same as the Sedan and Wagon.

Another question thanks...if I'm removing the shock and strut as one piece, do I need a spring compressor,
I want to replace the strut plate.
Painfully, it is part of the assembly. You will need a spring compressor.
This is the spring compressor to buy. I bought the compressor tool from Amazon for like half price. But, it is difficult to use. You could take it to a shop and have them do the spring...

Now that's nice but a little more than I want to spend. Lol

I have the car sold but I need to fix this problem first
Pricy but I want one. Such a pain to undo the spring without launching it. Also, make note if the clicking as it is a bitch to get it to rotate once assembled.
I have one more question, on the strut mount you posted for me does it come with the bearing, doesn't say on the site. Thanks
Thanks for your help.
