SOURCE: Recommended type of struts for 2000 Toyota Avalon

II have found over the years that a company called MONROE makes a very high quality strut (around $50 each) and have never had a problem with them, they come in a gas charged strut cartriage and this is what u want, there are others out there but many like BILSTIEN that ride really rough and cost around $100 each

How to remove the rear seat on 96 toyota avalon to replace rear struts


You do need to have a spring compressor. Get the McPherson spring compressor. It is a must. You can rent them at O'reillys auto parts, Kragen, maybe Auto Zone. To get a better understanding on how to change it out, I recommend a chilton 95-97 Camary Manual. Now I can't remember the exact tools you need but the ones I can remember are 22mm socket, 14mm socket, 12mm socket, for the 2 large stubborn bolts I had to impact drill them, and with that 12mm socket don't forget to take the brake line off the strut. When you jack up the car try using its stock jack stand if you dont want to bend the running bars underneath where you jack it up as the car is a unibody jacking it up too high will lift the cars whole side and you only need to jack it enough to take the tire off. The back struts require you to take out your back seat which are also easy to take out.

To remove the rear seat here a link, its on a 2000 but should be generally the same. I learn better with pictures anyway, hope this helps!

Dealer says that I need to replace right rear strut. Noise generated when going over a rough road. The dealer cost is 700.00. This sounds high to me. I've changed struts on vw's before. Is it...


This is in the realm of DIY but you will definitely need a spring compressor if this is in fact a strut-type assembly. The coil springs are under a great deal of tension and disassembling them without the compressor can be lethal. It is known that Toyota parts and service can be costly but if you intend on doing your own service, I highly recommend you invest ~$25 in a service manual for your car. These can be had on line:

or at auto parts stores.

ABS light is on and Track-Off light is blinking


"ABS light came on and Track-off light started blinking"
This happened after I replaced the rear struts (shock absorbers") It turned out to be the left rear wheel sensor ($156.75). I must have damaged it when I replaced the strut. The way to check the 'rear' sensors is to remove the back seat to gain access to each sensor plug (2 prongs). Unplug it and check for continuity. If there is no continuity then you have a bad sensor, or an unlikely break in one of the wires. I checked for a break in each wire but they were fine.
