Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
Have replaced left rear strut and strut mount with new but still getting an annoying knocking in the same area as before what could be the problem?
Whoever replaced the strut neglected to replace the "bearing support cap"...Tthat is the black thing that is on top of the strut, above the spring... this also has the 3 studs on it that holds the top of the strut to the vehicle. The rubber in the center of this plate has failed. What you are hearing is the strut banging back & forth inside of this plate. What you need to do is remove the strut, re-compress the spring, and get a new "strut cap".
This will fix the problem.
Very common that this item is omitted whilst replacing struts.
