So I recently picked up some unity struts for the front on my 96 Camry 3.0 v6 from Amazon that I picked up from their warehouse deal for $24.I now want to buy the rear struts from unity as well but I cannot find the part numbers for a 3.0.I saw part #15322 from unity but according to car iD it’s only for 2.2 camrys.

Guess > the I4 and V6 use the same rear struts. There is no weight difference at the rear, unlike the front.

We fitted Unity struts, fronts last 3/ 3.5 years, rears have been on 6 years and are still good.

Check RockAuto. They list several complete struts for rear.

I can confirm, I am currently using v6 struts on a 2.2 rear. I blew a shock and pick n pull had a 40% everything you pull, so it was a temp fix. Pulled from a v6.

Looking on Monroe's site, the V6 doesn't have QuickStrut assemblies but shares the SAME struts with the 2.2L 4-cyl. The mount 902927, spring seat 904953 and boot 63619 are the same for V6 and I4. (Monroe doesn't carry springs)

Moog says you can use the same CC277 springs, and this implies the 2.2L I4 rear assemblies can be used V6 and I4. Moog lists the assemblies only for I4 as well.

The problem I think might be the low sale volume for the V6 that they just didn't bother, and not that the rear assemblies can't be interchanged. I'd give Monroe and Moog tech support a call and discuss if the otherwise identical parts can't be used.

Monroe 3.0L V6 sedan (these have struts only)
Front struts only 71980/71979
Rear struts only 71681/71680

However, 2.2L sedan lists also QuickStruts:
QuickStruts Front 171980/171979
QuickStruts Rear 171958/171957
Front struts only 71980/71979
Rear struts only 71681/71680
