I need to get new struts, I'll probably do it myself but is it the ripped plastic part making the horrible sound when I turn? It sounds like I'm dragging empty plastic bottles when I turn. Can I remove that part or is it necessary for the strut?

Strut boots protect the strut shaft from dirt, mud, rain, salt etc. If your boot is making noise it must be a big piece ripped and bouncing around. Just cut the torn piece off if the noise bothers you.

There are a few brands that look similar to the original boot that have the upper insulator lip: Monroe 909931 and Febest THSB-ACA30F. You may want to double check if these fit your vehicle.
