I have a 98 ex that did the same thing, and it was a broken cover on the strut. It broke off around the top of the mount and the tube was just rattling free around the strut inside the spring. This was on the front driver side. The rear pax side strut is also leaking, so I will be replacing that one as well. Not looking forward to pulling the springs again. (when we puchased this vehicle, it had springs that were all lowered 1.5 inches, probably leading to the strut failure. I replaced all the springs and should have done struts at the same time. Had we only known we would not have purchased an altered vehicle. Buyer beware!!) Good luck. I had the same problem, and it turned out it was a sway bar link. I really noticed it over bumpy roads. There is also a recall on some years - check with dealer for applicability to your vehicle. The recall states a rattling noise when going over bumps is caused by the upper mounting bolts on the front struts.
I have a 2001 I had the same problem when driven through rough roads and railroad tracks, I replaced the front struts and that solved the problem. I have a 2000 that rattles too. Looking for the answer.
Possably the struts!!!!
Loose: ball joints, stabilizer links, struts come to mind.
link pin needs replace
I have replaced struts, linkages, sway bar bushings, etc. Appears to be in the body to chassis bushing area? Any common issues with rattles under 1997 camry's? This rattle gets worse in cold weather. Please give suggestions...thanks!
I know the struts make a noise like something is loose and knocking up and down every time you hit any kind of slight bump or roll over any type of uneven surface it rattles. I hope this help it was the only way I could describe it.
It has shocks in the rear I believe. Not struts. Struts are in front.
They have struts!
Yes it has struts
No, there are shocks, but no struts
There are many differences between Struts 1.3 and Struts 2.0-1)Action Class-In Struts 1.3, Action Classes needs to extend an abstract base class. But in Struts 2.0, Action classes needs to implement an Action interface.2)Thread-Safety-In Struts 1.3, actions are singletons and thread-safe.In Struts 2.0, action objects are instantiated for each request.3)In Struts 1.3, actions must share same lifecycle.In Struts 2.0, every action has different lifecycle.4)In Struts 1.3, servlet action have dependencies on servlet API.In Struts 2.0, these dependencies have been removed.5)Struts 1.3 uses Action Forms to take the input.Struts 2.0 use Action Properties for taking inputs.As Struts 2.0 is improved version of Struts 1.3, so there are uncountable similarities between them. All the basic features are same in both.
most likely struts.
its not your struts you have to check your tire alinement's
Yes. All cars have struts in the front and shocks in the rear. However, it does not have McPherson struts
