Im not sure what car the instructions above are for, but it's not a Cressida. They dont have upper front control arms.
\012
\012 Anyways,
\012
\012You remove the brake line, brake caliper, brake rotor. Then you remove the sway bar end link that attaches to the shock housing. Next remove the lower 2 shock bolts and the 3 upper mount bolts in the engine bay. Then you push down on the lower control arm so that you can remove the entire shock/spindle assembly.
\012
\012Then take it to a shop to compress the spring to take it all apart.

What model years are windows interchangeable with 98 Camry? My front passenger side window on my 98 Toyota Camry sedan was recently smashed and looking for a replacement from the Pick your part, I was told by the Toyota dealer that model years 94 to 98 were interchangeable but I got a window from a 94 and it is no where close to fitting my 98 sedan.

2000 Lexus ES300 - 45K miles. While driving over small bumps, the right front strut and sometimes left front strut makes a rattling noise as if something is loose. I have also heard same rattling noise in 1998 Lexus ES300 model car. Any ideas on how to fix? Replace strut mounts, etc.? Thanks! Mark

I just got my front brakes replaced on my 2000 Toyota Camry. It has less than 80,000 miles on it. The mechanic said that there had been only 1/32nd" left on the front, but the back brakes were fine. However, there were a few other problems that came up. I would just like to know if what the mechanic said was just a way to get more money, or if there really is a potential problem. Here's what he said: Front & Rear Strut Replacement Rear brake clean and adjust Brake fluid flush Alignment Fuel Filt

On refitting front suspension strut following renewal of coil spring the upper mounting plate bears hard down on the turret (as it did before job) The same plate on the other (undisturbed)strut is around 7mm clear of the turret. I have reassembled the strut as per Haynes manual,and supplier assures me the spacer/bush mentioned in the Haynes manual is not required for my model. Can you suggest what might cause this?---I HAVE replaced all components in correct sequence.


Yeah.. Check your shockhead, shock abd strut head rubbers.. And last make sure that the 2 springs are the same. I got a feeling 1 is different and that's what is causing the spacing difference. ... Volkswagen Golf

I had my front struts and strut mounds replaced as well as a wheel alignment which was very expensive. There is only a two week warranty on the alignment. Can you tell me why there would only be a two week warranty? Also what could happen after the two weeks? I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla.

Hi. I noticed that you tried to help someone with their toyota radio code in the past. I have a 1995 Toyota Avalon radio that I'm replacing for my mother-in-law.
