Strut suspension eliminates the traditional upper control arm; the bottom body of the strut (which includes the shock) attaches to the top of the steering knuckle, and the top (which is the rod from the shock) attaches through a rubber mount to the body structure. The upper mount has a bearing in it so the strut can turn with the steering knuckle, and its location is adjustable to provide for caster and camber adjustment.
