Make sure the belts on the tires are not broken, Make sure the rims are not bent.

Physically feel the top of the tire for bumps or abnormal wear

Jack the tires in the rear off the ground and move the tires around feeling for any looseness.

Grab the tire at 12 o clock and 6 o clock and push and pull.
Grab the tire at 3 o clock and 9 o click and push and pull.

Each time seeing if there is play in any direction. If there is play, have a helper climb under while your moving the tire and see what is moving

Also, While the tire is off the ground.. grab a pry bar or something long and hard and place it under the tire and lift the pry bar up, moving the tire up a little bit checking for looseness or sounds.

Make sure to use Jack Stands in case the Jack falls over


Broken belts are a very common reason why you get bad vibrations. If you do not find anything out of the ordinary, take it to a tire shop and have them inspect them

+1 on tire issues.
My parents 96 avalon was thumping and vibrating, their Douglas tires had several flaws. New rear tires and the car was rolling perfect again. Take good advise everything Mr Perkins posted above is on the money 100%...

I am confused about the words lateral link. Are you talking about the swaybar end link? The factory endlinks can be a pain to remove.. First things first GET A MANUAL factory repair manual is best but Haynes makes an ok manual. If I were you, I would click the white box labled (gen 3 owners click here)in Mr Perkins signature and look around at some of that info..

He is not talking about the endlink. There is an adjustable link going to the rear wheels from the vehicle with bushings on each end. I had a buddy help me replace one on the wagon. It's pretty straight forward...unbolt the old one, bolt the new one in. I would go get an alignment afterwards though.

If you measure the amount of thread sticking out from where the nuts / adjustment nut assembly you can just make sure the amount of threads are exactly the same and you will not have to re-align it

Yeah, that's what we did with mine, but I figured that's not necessarily the easiest thing to do for everyone.

331,000 miles and the wife's 1995 Camry LE finally bit the dust...but we can rebuild it, we have the technology...

I actually just replaced these on the 92 XLE Yesterday. 21MM Wrench for the adjustment nut & locking nut, 19MM for the nut that attaches to the knuckle assembly.

If you have a LSPV then the nut is a 12MM.

It also makes it easier to have the tire off. Just please dont forget to use jack stands. Air tools will make it easier to take the 19mm nut off, but you can wrench it out too with a cheater bar if needed.

Toyota refers to that part as "Rear Lateral Control Rod Number 2". I had to replace one a couple of years ago on my 94 Camry.

3rd Generation Similar problem. Bushings OK?

I have similar problem (rear suspension "hit" noise) and my rear wheels are little bit moving when I shake them by the hands (car jack'd up). I found that rear track control arms bushings are worn. I bought complete set of bushings (+ sway bar rubbers)...
And my question: is those rubbers/bushings are OK or not for 1994 5S-FE Camry? Please look at the pics and tell what you think...
Now I don't have opportunity, to replace them (or only look under the car, to compare new with old ones), cause it's winter with heavy snowing here (+ Christmas time coming).

Bushing numbers (from next pic) are: 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.

So, it all looks fine (will fit) or not?

Did you buy used bushings? Probally not your best bet..

4th Generation

Probable is the Tie Rod behind the tire, and it is not that hard to replace.

I bought the whole link from Toyota. I was told you could not get just the bushings. LMK how those work out. I have a feeling I'll be doing this at least three more times (the side I didn't do on the wagon, and both on the other car.)
