You do have bushings & mounts on the entire suspension that have been on the truck for nearly 20 years, more than likely without being replaced. I would recommend a good inspection of all of those for detoriorated rubber, possibly hardened without any "give" as it originally did before being put to use.

These can be replaced w/OEM parts or Poly bushings if necessary, but you'll find the Poly bushings may last even longer, but provide a stiffer ride.

The Struts/Shocks should be tested by simply pushing up & down at each corner of the car & watching the rebound as well as noting the amount of pressure is necessary to cause them to bounce.

good luck

I replaced my power steering pump in my 1994 toyota pick up and the power steering still won't work? What else could be wrong?

If you are saying the steering is difficult to turn you could have a blocked hose or a problem in the gearbox.
Or something in the front suspension such as a faulty ball joint.

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.

I replaced my rotors and pads on my 1994 pick up (4x4) as I apply the brakes the right front shakes severely. I had the rotor resurfaced,checked to make sure the new inner and outer bearings are seated...

Seems likely that the rotor is the problem. There are affordable dial indicators at tool stores these days ... although if the shaking is severe and it IS the rotor you can probably see the run out when you spin the axle.

1992 toyota tacoma pick up will not start when it is colder outside. Usually when the temp is closer to 0 degree's. When it warms up outside there is no problem.....

Do you have a good battery? Cold weather is hard on batteries. Also you may need to change to a winter grade of oil. Oil thickens in the cold a makes starting difficult as well. Let me know. Thanks.

Knocking sound from front wheel on my 2WD 1992 toyota pickup. It happens as the truck is in motion. there will be a ticking sound as the wheel rotates. it sounds like a metal ball bearing is falling and...

This needs immediate attention . It can be the wheel bearing assembly, the axle worn out, the hub worn out , hitting the brakes.
Now it depends on your resources of technical work and equipment to do the job. Since this requires the removal of the hub assmebly and replacement your technical capacity is important.

Jack up the vehicle and manuall rotate to confirm remove tyre , now checck to confirm and replace accordingly. Use the correct torque, change faulty bushes in the suspension as you remove these front suspension.

1992 toyota pick up extra cab, extra long deluxe... what should the tire pressure be?

The Manufacturer's recommended tire size and inflation decal should be in the door jamb below the latching mechanism on the driver's side door, but if it is not there, 29-30psi front 32-34psi rear. You can go with 32psi at all four corners. That is the pressure i run in my '85 Xtra Cab DLX and it works great.

Hope this helps,
