Guys, I was wondering when are strut mounts due for replacement since my car is now 8 years old and the shocks are near due. I'm planning to do it myself and have them both replaced since I'm pulling down the whole assembly.

Good question Schnitz!

Other than a visual inspection, is there another way to tell when you need this work? Are there audible noises associated with this, or does it just feel like your shock(s) is/are really shot?

As well, what is involved with the cutting and the welding...

I have heard that some added squeeks and rattles accompany this problem. But I would say visual is the best way to check.

I will be doing this something this weekend.

We very rarely need to replace any at all. Most of the ones we do replace are due to body damage.
