Silicone is probably better. You don't really need adhesive there, just something that will form a nice gasket, and come off easily enough the next time you need to replace the strut.

If you use 5200, Murphy says you'll need to redo the strut soon. Use silicone, and you'll never again hit an underwater obstruction.
