Hi Dermot,

Thanks.  That's why I asked others to comment on this. I 
cannot find any evidence of changes in the front strut 
assembly by looking in my parts books or microfische and 
it's been ten years since I dealt with the bearing issue. 
 I guess I'm going to have to order a set of CRC2240's and 
try them since the part number applies to all models.  I 
don't know where I got that except that I have had Series 
2 strut tubes on my "want list" for a long time.  Maybe 
the bearing changed without changing the part number, but 
that seems rather strange.  The top mount (swivel) really 
has nothing to do with the strut tube as it mounts to the 
insert.  I guess I'm going nuts in my old age.  That's why 
it takes a village to raise a child.

   If you have a pair of CRC2240's, I'll take a pair.

My first point stands, however.  The bearings do go bad 
and must be checked under load.
