No, the rear struts will have to be replaced if they make noise and it bothers you.

From a safety point of view, if they are leaking or fail the 3 bounce test after pushing down on the bumper, then they should be replaced.

1995 toyota camry sways when turning


I'd be concerned a linkage has come adrift in the back end somewhere, or one of the rear struts has failed and lost its oil. Another possibility is that a rear wheel is loose, either at the wheel nuts or the hub itself.

Here is a diagram, at p 80 and p 89.

Have a look under there and compare it to this, try to see if anything has fallen off. Look at the rear strut towers to see if there is any fluid leak visible which might indicate one side is not functioning.

With the car jacked up, grab each rear wheel at the tread, front and rear, then top and bottom, give it a hard shake to see if you can feel any looseness.

Never get under the car when supported only by a jack of any type. Use axle stands or wheel ramps.

How do i change rear struts on 2004 camary?


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.

one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts

two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

2004 Camry rear support part numbers:

Left: 48750-33062
Right: 48760-33062

I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.

Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!

Replacing rear struts on 1999 Camry


As long as you have the ready struts no. They come with the spring and mount already attached. If you don't, you better have a good spring compressor to remove the old strut and replace it with a new one.

I am trying to replace my rear struts on a 2003 Toyota Camry. How do you access the top part of the strut assembly


Don't mess with struts unless you have a strut compression tool. You could get seriously injured. The nut is on top of the tower where the strut attaches.

Clunking and knocking noise from rear when hitting bumps.


-it could be the sawy bar linkages
-but also check to see if the struts are leaking or that it looks damp
-but because you said it doesn't look like it bouncing when you hit a dip most likely it could be that the struts are dead
-check to see the cars ride hieght that would give you a clue
