Al Shriver: Helpful video. Napa had complete strut, cheep. Saves time and safer.
ex powah: How much with parts and labor?
dner37: Great video. Really make it look easy for a beginner. Thank you.
Bob: This was very helpful for installing struts on a 2005 Camry. Nothing had changed. I used KYB struts, which offer a better ride, though a little more costly. I checked out another YouTube video about removing the back seat of the Camry, in order to understand how to remove the outside of the back seat, to get to the bolts on the top of the strut. I used the free strut spring compressors from O'Reilly Auto Parts, available from their tools behind the counter. I didn't see any danger in doing this. There are other videos about replacing the front struts, which explain how to use the spring compressors, but it's pretty obvious; you clamp them down on opposite sides of the spring, so you can remove the spring and other recyclable parts (there's a spacer and foam piece around the arm that extends out of the top of the strut). I did not find it necessary to replace any parts other than the stuts and the result was a ride that was improved dramatically.
Prarie449: Do i need a press for the spring?
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.
hondaatc1987: Will OEM Toyota rear struts for a 1997 Camry XLE fit a 1993 Camry LE rear? INTERCHANGEABLE in years?
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
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.
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
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!
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?
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
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.
APXautoparts: Yes, it should be the same.
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?
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.
Mark Rauser: Thats when the middle of the tire wears more than the outside and its doing that because you need new struts
APXautoparts: This video says that the boots come attached to the "strut mounts". It does not say that they come with the struts.
