I have a 1996 Toyota Camry. Recently, got car detailed and replaced rear struts. After getting it detailed, I notice when braking that it makes a clicking sorta noise. Got brakes changed 2 months ago, brand new. What is the noise and how can I fix it? :headbang:

does your car have a rear disk brake or not?

If the spring is broken thats probably the noise. That could also cause the strut to become compromised so Id have both the springs and struts looked at. Chances are the springs should be fine with only 91k miles. It sounds to me like the front struts need replacing especially if the back ones were just done. Hope this helps.

I got it looked at Active Green & Ross and was told to replace entire strut, but you know how they'll tell you anything to make money. I'm wodering should I just replace the spring or the whole thing. I replaced the entire back with Monroe Quick Struts.
