1996 V6 Camry 1MZFE, 169,000 miles

I'm poor :crying: and tomorrow the nearest junkyard is having a 1/2 off sale on all parts.>:D

I have a 96 v6 Camry and my back end is dragging, bottoming out, even a fool like me knows I have to replace the rear suspension, principally the struts. It's bad, maybe even dangerous.

Can I snag and swap in the rear suspension from a 93 i4..? Will that work..?

How about a 96 i4..?

AND: Coming back my car kicked off two codes P150 and P153: What should I do...?

Rockauto's catalog shows (if you click on the part number) the rear struts for your car are usable on:

LEXUS ES300 1992-2002
TOYOTA AVALON 1995-2003
TOYOTA CAMRY 1992-2001
TOYOTA SOLARA 1999-2003

However, assemblies that old (93, 96) likely aren't much better than what you have. And Gen 4 I4 have cheap, weaker springs in the back.

Maybe cheap assemblies on rockauto, such as the FCS for $62.79 each + shipping might be better? A gamble? Dunno. At least you don't have to remove them twice. ;)

Hmm...good point.

I remember there's somewhere here at TN we can go and get a 5% off code..? Do you know where that is..?

Do you know if R.A. is pretty reasonable about shipping charges? I'm in Calif, I don't know if that's super far away from them.

BTW, Gen 4 Monroe's el cheap Econo-Matic rear assemblies about $71 show:

LEXUS ES300 1992-2001
TOYOTA AVALON 1997-2003
TOYOTA CAMRY 1992-2001

So you may actually have a lot more choices. But double, triple check the applications. You don't want to get stuck with assemblies that don't fit. Ground shipping to you should be about $32 to say San Francisco. But not sure about you making a warranty claim and shipping back. You can probably contact Rockauto and discuss. Otherwise Autozone may be a better deal in case of warranty claims.
