I have a 2015 Abarth Convertible, I had a creaking noise coming from the front end every time you hit a bump. I kept taking it to the dealership until they did something to fix it.

They ended up changing out the front struts, the sound has came back and the ever since the change the front has seemed soft.

Is there a difference between the Abarth and a sport/pop/standard front struts? I assume there is and I don't know if they changed it as an assembly so I don't know if they changed the springs also.

I looked up the struts online but they say they are the same, which is hard to believe for me.
