Hi


Raise and support the vehicle

Remove the rear shock absorber

Push down on the lower control arm enough to allow the coil spring to slide out.

Remove the upper and lower insulators and check them to see if they need replacing.

I hope this helps

Cheers

SOURCE: where is the flasher on a 1994 toyota previa

The flasher is bolted to the firewall behind the right side of the instrument panel and you can't get to it from underneath the instrument panel. You will have to remove the center console fascia to get to the instrument cover screws and remove the instrument cover. Then you can get to the instrument holding screws and move the instrument panel out of the way. Either a service manual or AutoZone.com will have this information and pictures. Replace the flasher with a genuine Toyota flasher relay. The aftermarket relays might look like they fit but I have found out they don't work properly. The flasher is bolted to the firewall with a 13mm bolt. Take out the bolt and replace the flasher.

SOURCE: Besides a spring compressor, are there any

One item of advice. If it's not too much difference $ wise to buy complete "quick strut kit" which is the entire assembly already to go, then I'd do it.

You can easily fit coil springs and struts at the rear. at the front you will have to also change the torsion arms for thicker ones. fit gas shocks front and rear.

How to change the struts on toyota previa 1994


. Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels of the Previa. Lift the front of the automobile on the side that you are starting with. Place a jack stand under the Previa and raise it to the frame of the vehicle. Remove the wheel using the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.
2Remove the brake caliper by loosening the retaining pins with a socket and ratchet. Secure the caliper out of the way using a wire tie. Do not allow it to hang by the hose. Remove the brake rotor from the wheel. Disconnect the ABS sensor from the strut if the Previa has anti-lock brakes.

Getting nocking noise from rear of Toyota previa driver side


This can come from the suspension or the drive section but it is best to check if the fault is seen on the road or even while it is idling.if so the exhaust must be checked as a low idling can make the exhaust tap on the sides , specially the muffler or the exhaust pipes.If an inspection is done on the bottom side it will reveal the case.if not check the suspension and drive.

I have a toyota previa gx 1996 orange light seems to stay on


not to many local independent repair shop will have the right equipment to test or do correct diagnostic. same way if you have bone problems, you want to go see the bone specialist not an eye doctors, Engine service light could mean one or many things, I would recommend take it to Toyota Dealer and have them do proper diagnostic, Will cost you 70 to 85 bucks, its lot cheaper than guessing and buying parts and hope that will be the right one. Once they do diagnostic they will tell you what it need and you can do the work replacing the part your self. good luck

Likely you can use monroe load leveler coil over shocks (check and see if they make them for yours) or you can replace stock rear springs with an aftermarket variable load spring.

Rear motion from left to right


Your springs should not be the issue, the body will rot around them before they do. It sounds like shocks to me. I would probably look into all 4 corners, but the rears at least.
