broken strut i think Sign In

hi i have been having a little trouble with my 1997 honda cr-v it runs perfectly but it has been making some ratling nose so i took it to a mechanic and he took it for a test drive with me and then when we got back he lifted it up and took a rubber hammer to see what the noise might be so he found the noise and said that these certain parts were worn down and that they needed replacing if i wanted to fix the sound but that it is safe to drive so i had him order the part but it wont get in for 2 weeks because i live in hawaii and way in the mean time i drive it home and it feels really different not realated to the ratling. so now the ride is real bouncy and when i go over bumps the car makes a clanking kind of noise. i asked a friend that knows about cars and he said that it the strut broke. i was wondering how safe it is to drive with a broken strut or what could happen to the car if i drive it thank you for any response

NO!!!! That does NOT sound very safe!!!! No good excuse for having to wait two weeks for a part even in Hawaii. Hey -- I've spent some time in the 80s in Hawaii even on remote islands that had a pretty good system for products and planes are ariving near constantly and may cost you for fast deliveries but an accident will certainly cost you more. Be safe and Aloha, T
