hi bros/sis, i need some advice for camry 2.4 suspension problem. about 2 months ago I started to notice a weird sound coming from the back left wheel. when my camry drove pass a hump or uneven road condition, the left back wheel would give out a 'klo-klo' sounds, and it had just got worse these few days. It feel as if the oil tanks gonna drop off!

I asked a friends who told me could be suspension problem. Any bros can give some advice ? Can I just drive to toyota and ask them to check ? And if it is suspension problem, how much it cost to replace it ?

thanks a lot

If its shot, go to the stockist, buy the suspension for the rear, then head to your regular workshop to change. Far cheaper than BM

Did mine ( 2L Camry., JDM) recently for abt $750/- (front 2 shocks only plus stopper).
I always leave it to the wshp to do everything, so it won’t be the cheapest deal.

Done at petrol stn car servicing shop.

Think it will be time to fet a second quote for repair. 750 for front 2 shock is a bit expensive.
every day wont be the same after you make a wrong decision.

$750 is Hanip's price,they used the original parts,O.E.M. only costs about $400...

Camry's suspension are very tough already,usually these sound will come around 80k km...tear & wear occur on every car.

Isn't O.E.M already the original, Original Equipment Maker? Or there's something more original than OEM?

I had the front two coils replaced last year when my 2.0 was below 3 years old. Mileage at that was around 30 plus thousand KM. So far all four are ok.

What's your mileage? Let us know how much after you've changed cos I think sooner or later I'll need it too. Thanks.

Almost the same except original got the word "TOYOTA" marked on the body,while O.E.M. marked the Mfg name like Koni or KYB.

My rough idea: Toyota does not manufacture shock absorbers. They use market brands such as KYB. So, if your Toyota originally comes with a KYB, then it is the OEM part.
OEM part is the most expensive. If you want a lower cost replacement, they will give brand B.

BTW shock absorbers/struts/coils are the same thing?

Yes,Toyota buys parts from suppliers,but those supplied parts will not have their own brand marked on it.
