2017 Camry RZ Quite Jarring Ride. swap to SL shocks instead?

Hey Camry masters!

I've had this RZ for over a year now and do about 800kms per week in it so I'm looking for more comfort.

The ride is a bit jarring and I've test driven some SL's and they all feel more "limo like" in smoothness ... which is appreciated.

My maybe crazy idea would be to get a set of SL shocks of the same year and swap them in for better ride comfort.

Is that even possible? Are there any Camry mechanics that can tell me that they are all the same config just different ride comfort levels and the swap is a good idea?

Alternately... is it time to just trade it for a car already built for comfort?

I even bought thick sheepskin seat covers to no avail.

All help and answers appreciated.

Cheers

Cj

Wheels/tyres can make a big difference too, the RZs run 18s whereas the SLs are only 17s (which for the same overall diameter means more tyre sidewall for a softer ride).

Hi Hiro, thanks for that suggestion. I was thinking the same. I wonder if 16" will feel even better again and if they have the clearance needed for the brakes etc?

The 2017 Camry Altise is fitted with 16" wheels, according to Redbook. I do not know about clearance for the brake calipers.

If the brake calipers are the same across all 2017 Camry models, then you should be okay. Best to go to a tyre shop or wreckers and confirm that a 16" wheel will fit.

Thanks Campbeam, great advice. I'll ask a local tyre shop.
