Wheelchair / Scooter lift and carrier
Hi. I have a friend with a 2005 Camry. He is having problems with his mobilityand needs a wheelchair/scooter lift solution put on his car.
He purchased a motorized scooter that fits in the trunk but with his health he can't lift it out to use it. We found a local company that sells the motorized carrier and lift that attaches to a trailer hitch attachment. Our problem is that they do not think the Camrys rear suspension is going to perform well with all the extra tail end weight. No one locally seems to have a solution for beefing up the rear suspension. I have called muffler/suspension shops, the Toyota dealers locally, but no one has a solution. Closest thing I got to my idea of the solution was having custom springs made by a local company.
Has anyone on these forums had a similar situation and maybe found a solution for the suspension concerns? Are there any kits out there that address trailer hitches and rear suspension modifications?
