  1. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hello all I'm fairly new here and I usually spend my time browsing forums as they apply to me instead of posting but I have a legitimate question that I think it might not have been discussed before. I have a 2009 Toyota Highlander limited FWD at roughly 135k miles and all the struts have...

    Hi, One of the tailgate strut (left) has completely detatched due to rust and the one on the right side is also higly corroded. I have a limited RAV4 2015. The rust is solely located in this precise area. The cost to replace it is about 1000$ for each strut. I am currently looking at legal...
  3. Highlander 4th Generation (2020+)
    I’ve got the 2021 Highlander Platinum, in the last 1000 miles, I’ve noticed a very irregular popping noise in the front end and can feel it in the floor and petals. More frequently when making right hand turns while slowing down but does it any time the front left wheel is “challenged”.. rougher...

    My dad purchased an 06 avalon limited brand new in late 2005, and my brother has graduated from college on east coast and is driving it to west coast for phd program in the fall, and I want to swap out the struts. This is a very early model 2006, manufacture date is 08/05, 10th digit is a 6 so...
  5. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello! I'm trying to track down a clunking sound in the front that happens mainly when I let off the accelerator. I've checked all the bushings and joints (sway bar/lca bushes look a little tired) but nothing is sending major alarm bells. I disconnected the struts from the knuckle and they were...

    04 Camry XLE 3.0L This wasn't an issue before I replaced my strut assembly. Leads me to believe I made a mistake during the installation of new struts. When I removed the steering knuckle, I think the outer CV joint popped out of the driveshaft. I can't see inside the CV Boot, but I can kinda...

    I changed out my original front struts at 211,000 miles. Is there a Wrong way to install them other than upside down? Do they have to be rotated a certain way so the three top bolts and plate sit a certain way? The reason I replaced my original struts was due to a grinding noise in the...

    Recently I have installed a new Monroe strut on my 2003 Camry 2.4L LE. Mount plate , bearing , sprint coil , bushing all in good shape. I hear clunking noise when I hit bump. So I had to take it apart to figure out what is making this clunking noise. I did not take any picture before I took it...

    Hello all, it's been a while and I come to you seeking help with a few repairs i'd to like attempt. My solara is at 204k miles if you'd like to know. I've had it for about 4 years. Over the years i've been fixing things here and there. One thing that has been prominent for at least the...

    Here's how to replace the strut or strut mount using spring compressors on a Toyota or Lexus with MacPherson strut front suspension. I made a short DIY video on the process: While quick-struts are available for these cars, not all of them are made to the same quality and specifications as the...
  13. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Just thought I'd share my short video on the basics of automotive suspension systems. Using my car as an example, I tore down each component and explained the difference between the two most popular types, double wishbone and MacPherson strut front suspension: Skip toward the end to watch the...
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Here’s how a strut or shock absorber works in your car to dampen the ride. I took apart a strut and grinded it open to see the mechanics inside and made a short video on it: The spring is responsible for supporting the weight of the vehicle. It absorbs the majority of the...
  15. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Hi, y'all! After lurking in this forum on and off for a couple of years for basic tuneup tips, I finally decided to become a serious DIYer. In fact, I jumped in with both feet at a diesel mechanic friend's encouragement. What started out as simple installation of 4 Monroe Economatic complete...

    Hey all, I am currently torn between two different sets of front struts. I'll post a link to the front-right of each version. I'm looking for users who have had to have these replaced on their 2003 Camry 2.4 l Monroe KYB It's also noteworthy that the Monroe's are readily available and more...
  17. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi, I went into a shop today and got my corolla checked out and they said that its shock absorbers and struts should be replaced because the oils were leaking and they told me the total estimate of my cost (parts+labors) are about 1300 dollars. I thought that if I could buy the parts from other...

  20. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I know this is a worn out subject, but each thread helps put more good information out there. I bought a 1999 Camry LE (3.0 V-6) from a friend with 89K original miles on it. Awesome car, but it is up there in age and the suspension has gone soft. I've been playing with cars close to 30yrs and...
