    just lift up the car and start touching the strut and see if anything is loose

    Damn, that doesn't sound good. It sounds like a loose strut more than a blown one to me.

    could be the mount top too. I had a strut literally go right up into the truck in my del sol. The center shaft just popped right through the top.

    it is either the strut or strut hat. a quick visual will let you know which one it is.
