Did this video help you?

Prarie449: Do i need a press for the spring?

Edmund Williams: Nice video. I need a rear strut mount for my 1996 Camry. What brand do you recommend? Thanks

hondaatc1987: Will OEM Toyota rear struts for a 1997 Camry XLE fit a 1993 Camry LE rear? INTERCHANGEABLE in years?

Ken Watkinson: Thanks you Bryan Barnes for you input.My worker replaced struts and didn't remove bolt for abs.I was accused of tampering with abs system.Abs light came on.

Teo Lopez: Great video. Struts that he shows to use are just horrible. Ended up getting higher end struts. These lasted me 6 months. Here in MA roads are horrible, Rt.9 and back roads

Bryan Barnes: What about removing the bolt that holds the ABS wires on the strut? I did not do that and now my ABS warning light is on. What now?

TheKreesman: Also, the sway bar nut OEM is 14 mm but you may need to do a replacement if it's old and the stud doesn't stay stationary anymore. These are about $20-25 apiece, and the nut is often 17 mils. You failed to mention taking the bolt off that holds the ABS wires to safeguard them. That's 10 mils. And the main mount bolts are NOT 22 mils, they're 19 mils, at least on a '97.

TheKreesman: Be really careful with that first nut (14 mm) on the sway bar linkage, especially if there's a lot of rust.. The hex nut slot strips easily and that is NOT a bolt; it's just a stud going into the socket. The hex nut slot is just there to stabilize the stud while undoing the nut. I turned it too hard and the stud broke off inside the socket. Now I can't get the nut off either, and will have to replace the whole 6" linkage.

EvendimataE: springs don't need to be changed?

Dustin Cavanaugh: Awesome video. Thank you for sharing your expertise! You are a master of your craft.

Jeanie Temple: Do I have to pull the rear seat to access the bolt that releases the side pad?? 

rfn944: How do you replace the rubber ball joint on the stabilizer link? Are you referring to the rubber boot only? Do you have a video on this? Also does the new strut come with it's own rubber boot? Someone in the comments said no.

Abu Mariam: Great Video as usual looks easy :-) but I know taking the seat alone will be a challenge

Mark Rauser: Thats when the middle of the tire wears more than the outside and its doing that because you need new struts

Timothy Branthoover: Good video, only thing I would add is if you have the cloth interior, remove the pieces by the seats first. Dirt sticks to it easy.

merlynbill: The video says very specifically that the boots are attached and come with the struts. Be aware they do not and you will have to order them extra.

Cerju: does anyone know what size of allen socket is the one for the link?

Joe Chagas: I have to replace the left rear strut on my Corolla 1999 and I believe it is the same way. Thank you for the very clear video. Joe

Wrenchpro: So I changed my struts all four on my Toyota Camry 1999 V6 XLE, but I get a rubbing sound from the rear driver side every time I drive on a curvy road. Could I be my trailing arm, or did I just buy a bad shock? I also replaced the sway bar endlink, however I still get the same sound. all I carry in the trunk is a fairly light weight stroller.

APXautoparts: They absolutely will. I had this problem on my Jetta rears. If you can afford it...its often not a bad idea to replace your shocks/struts and tires at the same time.

APXautoparts: The 2003 falls within the 2002-2003 range of Toyota Camry. We have not performed an installation on the 2003 yet but it should be a very similar process to what you see here.

DesertDigger1: It did need a new motor but the body and interior are in excellent condition.Got a used low mileage engine for $600 and it runs like a top.It has new struts now and also bought a 2011 Camry but kept the 96.The guy that owns the salvage yard had too many vehicles and had to make room,thats why it was slated for the crusher.

DesertDigger1: Good info,thanks.I wouldn't have thought about replacing the stabilizers as well,only makes sense though,why put new parts with old parts.I towed my 96 Camry 17,000 miles behind my RV on a car dolly with a loaded trunk all original struts,I,m sure it didn't do it justice...But now its time for replacements.Around $120 per strut minus labor is what I,m seeing.160000 miles on it and it gets 36 M.P.G.Paid $185 from a salvage yard that was going to crush it.Kinda like a rescue dog.4 years now.

ryanfromnm: Hey! Thank you for this vid...i got down to the top of the strut and was confused if i should remove the three bracket bolts or try to take the main nut off the top of the shock. wish my job was moving as fast as this video did!

Solomon Yim: how much is a ball joint.

APXautoparts: There is a link in my description above for your 1996 Camry struts. Just deselect what you do not need and use the promo code "camryvideo". We essentially sell all four struts for around $160.

rstjclemmons: Will bad rear struts cause your rear tires to cup?

APXautoparts: This video says that the boots come attached to the "strut mounts". It does not say that they come with the struts.

Seth Bruns: Me too buddy, me too. Wouldn't we all love to get our Camry ride quality back to factory, these Camry's were magic carpets. I love my 99

APXautoparts: Yes, it should be the same.

a1exgerman: I hate videos like this, make me feel like I could replace my struts in 10 minutes. I know ill be in there 3 days later with half the job done and something irreparably damaged.

APXautoparts: It could be the trailing arm. I would check to make sure that your stabilizer bar link is in good condition, though this would make more of a clunking sound. You may also want to make sure that the coil spring is in the proper position as sometimes the spring will slip and rub on the seat if not positioned properly. Another source of noise could be a worn coil spring seat insulator.

SaganAppreciationSoc: What is cupping? The top inside wall of my tires are now rubbing against my struts. I have 8 tires each on their own rims (summers and snows). It the same for all of them.

Joseph Upali: Thank you very much Sir, now will this video work for my 2003 Camry rear struts?

APXautoparts: The rear strut mounts for the 97-2001 is part number 70050 and they do show on the website with the boot attached. The 92-96 is a different strut mount part number, which I should have noted in the video. It is part number 70180 and does not have the boot attached.

allnonevideo1: Disappointed with not showing how to un-screw all 3 three nuts off the top of the strut. One the one easy one is shown, not the other 2 pain in the butt ones.????? Come on show the whole process, everything else was good

SaganAppreciationSoc: You paid $186 for working Camry with 160K? Why were they going to crush it? What work did it need?

sferris5316: I've heard it's pretty much the same as a toyota avalon. I have a 96, is the installation pretty much the same?

Norman Y: get it on a lift or something that will allow you to see the strut. If its cracked or leaking it needs replacement (the strut). Get your aligment checked too. It could be just that. Strut is the worst you have to worry about.

lnstrnt: The vid cites 1992-2001. Would the steps be roughly the same for my 1990 Camry? Also ... I'm unsure of the last strut-replacement mileage; but I'm getting slight cupping on the driver-rear tire. What's the best way to know clearly that I do or don't need new shocks/struts. Might I only need new bushings?

Michael Adkins: Even after 3 years after having watched the movie, I'm still having a hard time getting over how the Teacher had used overkill on JIn-Roh! He didn't have to circle around Jin-Roh like that, but I think that the Teacher could tell that it was one of his clones when Jin-Roh performed *Pugachev's Cobra* which both Jin-Roh and Teacher use in this movie. I've tried this maneuver myself in video games, and it's pretty neat when someone is tailing you in a dog fight. However, in real life, very few people can actually pull this off. It's sad that there doesn't appear to be any end to the horrors that the kildren face. You'd think that the kildren would stop killing each other and turn on their makers for making them fight in the first place.
