By strut mount, do you mean the bearing? It was ok when I inspected upon install though I did not replace it, maybe its worn. I will double check the strut nut (hehe) to make sure all is still tight (double hehe)

If the sway link is contacting the fender well wouldn't that mean the control arm bushings are bad and letting the control arm walk? I know I see a lot of BMW's do that
