Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

I have a 1996 Toyota Camry with 17' aftermarket wheels and tires on it. When i have people ride in the back seat my fenders rub my tires really bad. Do you think i need to change my struts, if not then how do i diagnose the problem because it doesn't happen when no one is in the back seat

You can add spacers to the springs or add stiffer/taller springs-you can 'roll' the outer lip. add/subtract spacers to the wheels, it is not your struts though. Maybe take the car to a good wheel shop for suggestions, people put 17's on 'yota's all the time, but too wide a tire has to be compensated for if you do that.

    they are wide rims with low profile tires.....its good to hear it not my struts because i have no clue how to change them

    removing rear springs is not as difficult as the fronts, you need a couple of jackstands and a jack to get it up in the air to take tension off the springs. Unbolt the perch on the rear suspension crossmember and if there is a locator up top remove it-with a little force the spring will come out (good to have a long bar of some kind to wedge in the spring to force it out). It is just grunt work, when you get under the car with it up in the air it is pretty self-explanatory. If you have to use a spring compressor, you get get a loaner from most commercial auto parts stores for free.

If anything, you need better rear springs. Springs support the suspension not the struts. Struts just keep ride smooth and stable. Get bigger/heavier duty rear springs.

    it also scrapes my fenders if i hit a pot hole in the road, the rear end seems real bouncy

    Get heavier duty springs - it will stiffen the ride and stop bouncing and tire scraping.

Will a 225/55/r17 tire fit on my 17 inch wheels for my 1995 toyota celica gt?


if you get a 225/45/17 probably but a 55 series is to tall it will rub or hit strut, unless you are using aftermarket adjustable struts.
