Is it possible to replace the shock absorber inserts in SV21 Camry?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have a 1991 SV21 Camry which is in bad need of having the shock absorbers replaced on all four corners.

Can anyone tell me definitively if it is possible to replace just the shock absorber inserts? Or does it require the entire strut assembly to be replaced? I have been told by some that the shocks cannot be replaced, yet I see they are available to purchase individually, hence the confusion.

While replacing the shocks, how do you know if the springs also need replacing?

Thank you for your assistance,

You will need to change the entire strut assembly, there may be aftermarket shocks that can be inserted, though I'm not sure what would be involved to get them in.
