What could be causing a rattling noise and sway in the rear of a 1995 Toyota Camry?
Possibly sway bar bushings. I just replaced mine on my 94 and it
was doing exactly as you describe. They really are not much to
replace. There is a bolt at each end that needs to come off and you
just replace it. I went to the junk yard and picked up two off a
car with low mileage and the bushings were in good shape. Usually
just the back sway bars need replaced. There are two on each side.
Try this, jack up the car and grab the tire at 3:00 and 9:00 (right
and left) and see if the the wheel moves from side to side. Have
someone else do it while you look at the bushing at the end of the
sway bar and you will see it move if its bad. If the sway bar is
good then it will be solid when you try to move the tire from side
to side. The only problem I had when I changed mine was on the
inner end of the sway bar. You have to hold the end of the bolt
while you loosen the nut and the head of the bolt is in a little
like cup and there is not enough room for a socket and rachet and a
wrench would not fit in either. I bent the edge of the gas tank up
slightly till I got a socket in to hold it.
