I'm willing to bet my late 2016 Aurion Sportivo has the exact same strut so I know what you're talking about. It's a brittle ride quality specially engineered by brand T techs who couldn't be stuffed doing a proper job 😏
Fine on smooth surfaces but not so on the rough stuff. Good thing I spend most of my life on a fwy.
You should be able to swap out the struts to the alternative spec being the usual soft ride but im not certain on your car. KYB website will tell you though or a Toyota dealer.
Smaller wheels & higher profile tyres will help but will it be enough? Ideally change both but won't be cheap.
Someone or something has popped it in. Stick your head under the bumper, you should be able to push it back into place. I can't remember but it should snap back into place. By shining a torch you should be able to understand what's going on & fix it yourself.
Once in place sensor should work properly.
That makes a stack of sense to me. A year before I got the RZ I tried a 2018 SL and it was so smooth. I now wish I bought it!
I'll be trying out a few of the camry models now and avoiding all "sports" at all costs.
Thanks for the detail.
I've had my RZ Camry since new (2017)
The "jarring ride" is due to this car having a "sports suspension"
This is part of the difference between the RZ and say the base model.
So whilst the turning circle is unchanged compared to the other Camry's and is still not great compared to say a Subaru Liberty of the same production period, it "hugs" the road better then other Camry's (of the same year model)
So it feels "less boaty", and more stable on the highway, especially at the higher speeds.... or so "I've heard" 😂
The SL is a completely different car, the last of the Australian built Camry's were in 2017,
They then "changed shape" a.k.a completely new car in 2017/2018 and these were built in Japan
The "SL" is part of the "new range" that is built in Japan
Changing tyres / having them inflated to the "correct" pressure may help, but on the whole and I'm not sure how else to put it....... but that's the "traits" of the car that you purchased.
As an aside, please ensure that you have been doing the "in-between" oil changes and using a full synthetic oil 🙂
So depending on your budget, it may be time to change "rides", which if this is the case, check what your car is "going for" to see if trade in value or selling the car privately is the best option.
I hope that this helps 🙂
