thanks Mark, right on.
The refresh did include new strut bearings and mounts. I did as you suggested and first checked the spring "nesting" in the perch ... it was good. Then with the car on jackstands and a helper turning the steering wheel I could hear ... then feel .. then see the knock from the spring as it struggled against the strut bearing.looks like the strut bearing is seized or something. I'll look up the brand that I used and post it. I recall thinking that the new ones felt cheap compared to the original.
