2015 Dart GT with 67,000 miles
When I back up the car from a parking spot or a k-turn, the front wheels feel like they are flopping around like there is a bad idler arm.
I know these cars don't have idler arms so i'm wondering if its the strut mounts?

Anybody have a preference between the KYB and Moog mounts?

Does it make a noise? Are you still on the originals? I had to have my front mounts (2014 GT) changed this winter with less than 30k miles on it. As the cold weather came, it started making a noise in the morning when backing out of the drive way. This is a known issue with the Darts and certain OEM covers. However, don't recall seeing that people had an issue are "flopping" around.

Its definitely the mounts. The floppy feeling is the strut binding then releasing when backing up.
I was able to order both sides from Amazon, KYB and had a $80 credit so it only cost me $20!

Hope to do it this weekend if the weather holds.

You will want to change over to the new style covers as well. I don't know the part number, but I believe this was an issue that lead to water migrating and corroding the mounts. Anyone have this info?
