    have you tried pulling up the dust boot and tightening the strut tube nut at the top? Use a pipe wrench.

    It's unlikely.Look at all plastic covers first.

    Shields and covers can make similar noise. Or canisters under the hood.

    My Left Boge insert was making clicking sounds

    before I replaced it. Boge was the original insert; when I pull it out it was already separated into two parts and oil rushed out to the surrounding.Patrick C 88 750 159K
