Strut mounts are turning with the wheel? Huh, that's not possible. Your struts do not move with the wheel. They are stationary. You must be talking about something else

young is right. the front struts pivot w the wheel since they r rigidly attached 2 the knuckle.

with the car raised and the front wheels on, u should be able to turn the right and left wheel relatively easily by hand by grabbin each one and doing so. the key will have 2 be in the on position to prevent the steering wheel lock.

u can also detach each sides outer tie rod end from the knuckle to isolate the problem and try moving the wheels by hand again.
