Hi,

Just bought a 15 yr old corolla AE101. When there is 3 rear passenger
knocking noise appears when doing a left turn. It seems that the right rear
wheel hits the mud guard during turning
Normaly how often does the rear spring last?
It seems that corolla rear spring seems to be very soft. I felt another
AE111 also has soft spring when the shock absorber was replaced at the 3rd
yr, the absorber could last only 2 yrs (5yr).


Thanks

Richard

I believe that the AE 101 has a strut type rear suspension, and it is
possible that one or both of the rear struts are worn or leaking. Springs
normally last the life of a vehicle unless the vehicle is often loaded to
capacity or over-loaded.
