  2. First Gen Matrix FWD/AWD Rear Suspension

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Looking for new coils to carry additional tail weight on a 2004 FWD Matrix. Vehicle ride height is compromised under load; tail to the pavement. Before I start drilling holes for a leaf spring kit to get the boat down to the marina, there must be an alternative to the OEM rear coils. From...
  3. 2003 Camry front clunking noise after replacing Struts

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I recently replaced all four struts with brand new Monroe OE-Spectrum struts. All 4 new KYB bump stops. Used my original Toyota coil springs and coil insulators. Two front mounts were in good shape and bearing were in good shape also. I did not have any clunking noise before I changed the...

    Corolla 6th Generation (1988-1992)
    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my question. I was wondering if there are different spring rates/strut stiffnesses between the GT-S coupe and DLX sedan. If so, what are the spring rates and are the parts physically interchangeable between the two trim levels? Reason I ask is...

    Highlander 1st Gen - Hybrid (XU20/2005-2007)
    2007 Highlander Hybrid w/ 150,000 miles. Car runs like new and we plan to keep it awhile, but Two things on ride: 1) Loud Road Noise 2) Not a smooth/comfortable ride anymore. For #1, I think I'm stuck with loud road noise on this suv. I tried to spray some undercoating in wheel wells, but...

  9. KYB Strut-Plus

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I found a large number of threads about how Monroe Quick Struts are awful, but I can find very little about the KYB pre-assembled version KYB Strut Plus. I did see one thread where a person wrote their Camry ended up about 1/2" higher than stock after switching to KYB Strut Plus, which does...

  11. WTB: 2003-2008 Corolla OEM full set of shocks & struts

    Hey everybody, Greetings from Bimmerforums. I was recently (graciously) given an '07 Corolla by my little brother to use as a commuter car. The thing is, he lowered it....and not the right way. He put ebay coilovers on the stock struts, and after some ~2k miles, I'm sure the pistons are...

  13. 2012 Corolla Struts

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Is it correct that many Corolla's share front suspension parts? I have been having a tough time finding the front strut assembly for my 2012, but a quick scan of the forum seems to suggest that all of the Corolla's from 2003 on have the same front ends and parts.
