How do you repair rear shock top mount on 99 rodeo


If you go to Advance Auto Parts store and they could tell you which parts you need to replace the strut tower cap and/or Upper Shock Mounts.

Rear shocks and wheel bearings.


The wheel bearing is pressed in and held in with a snap ring so you would need a shop press to make that easy to change. As far as the shock goes you can remove the whole thing from the car once on a bench you can try to hold the nut with a wrench and try turning the shaft. if your using factory parts you can get those shocks 2 ways either just the shock or the whole assembly.

Shocks


1992 Toyota Celica is not equipped with front "shocks". This vehicle is equipped with front wheel drive and independent MacPherson strut front suspension. Any repairs made to this system requires the removal of the entire strut assembly, which includes the strut, the coil spring and upper strut bearing assembly.

Replacement of any of the parts of the strut assembly requires the use of specialized equipment designed to compress and hold the coil spring to relieve the tension on the strut and upper bearing assembly.

Any attempt to disassemble the strut assembly without the proper equipment for compressing and securely holding the coil spring can result in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH.

Check the ball joints and cv axles this could cause the car to shake violently and most tire stores will check them for you for free.
