Isn't slipping 'up' leave less metal to hold the strut in? At some point it might break loose during a turn.

The strut actually sticks out the bottom of the spindle when you locate it correctly with the locater tab - all I'm doing is raising it up an inch, there's an ample amount of strut still in the spindle.

Like you said, if you do the warranty, it costs you money... for me it's my labor.

If it were my Buick, I'd go after it in a heartbeat because I can rip all the struts out in less than an hour - the Taurus is more like 3 hours just to get them out.
