Everything was good except I had to go find the Drivers side strut elsewhere which took me longer to fix my car as no one would answer the phones over there to let me know what was going on with my order. The other side was would be nice if the stock quantities were proper on the site otherwise I would of ordered locally for about the same price I just wish I could of ordered all of my parts at once rather than play lets pick a part locally and hopefully the struts match.

Tips to Keep Your Toyota Corolla Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly in Excellent Condition

A reliable shock absorber and strut assembly allows you to drive smoothly even through rough roads. It stabilizes the vehicle when you run onto road bumps and potholes. So when your Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assembly becomes spent, you should get yourself immune to the discomfort of a bumpy ride. To prevent this from happening sooner than you expect, you have to protect your Corolla's shocks and struts from premature deterioration. Keep it in healthy condition through these tips:

  • Inspect the shock absorber and strut assembly periodically.

Adequate attention is paramount in keeping the shocks and struts in healthy condition. If you want to extend their service lifespan, you need to have a look at the components at least once in six months. This gives you the heads-up if the parts have been damaged and needs to be replaced.

Always have jacks and jack stands ready when planning to examine your car's shock absorbers. These car parts usually get worn at about 25,000 miles. Therefore, you need to get under the vehicle and check for signs of wear and tear periodically. If you discover leakages or other signs of damage, changing the shocks and struts can be your best option.

  • Keep the shocks clean.

If inspection alone is enough to extend the lifespan of a shock absorber and strut assembly, then no driver would ever have to replace their shocks again. However, evaluating these components must always be combined with proper cleaning.

Clearing off dirt and grime from these parts involves the application of non-toxic cleaners mixed with water. Check out the shock absorber mounting area and see if it's time to apply some cleaner. You don't need to do this every day, since the cleaner can keep the shocks clean for some time. To guarantee that the cleaning agent you're using is safe, read the labels on the product.

  • Always have a test run after cleaning the components.

Remember that your Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assembly plays a huge role in your car's superb handling. To see if your vehicle's steering and suspension is not compromised during cleaning, go in front of your car and step one foot on the car's bumper. Try to push it down and release your foot. Observe if it bounces back to its original position. The car should bounce only a few times, otherwise, your shocks might have been damaged.

Toyota Corolla Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly Buyer’s Guide

Summary

  • A shock absorber and strut assembly, or shocks and struts for short, is an integral part of your car’s suspension system.
  • The shock absorber is a damping mechanism that controls bounce.
  • The strut, on the other hand, is a structural component that carries the weight of the vehicle.
  • This assembly combines your car’s spring, shock absorber, and strut into one serviceable component.
  • There are two types of shock absorber and strut assemblies: monotube and twin-tube designs.
  • The cost of a shock absorber and strut assembly varies depending on your Corolla’s specific model year. OEM replacement parts typically cost anywhere between $50 and $350.
  • Problems with your car’s shocks and struts can greatly affect ride comfort. As soon as you notice one or more of these symptoms, it is recommended to have your vehicle checked by your trusted mechanic.

 

The Toyota Corolla is undoubtedly one of the best-selling nameplates in US history. With over 40 million cars sold since it first rolled into the market, it proves Toyota’s winning formula of reliability and comfort. Contributing to the Corolla’s great ride quality is its shock absorber and strut assembly.

 

What is a shock absorber and strut assembly?

A shock absorber and strut assembly, or shocks and struts for short, is an integral part of your car’s suspension system. To put it simply, this component helps maintain riding height and minimizes bounce on uneven road. Unlike what most people think, shock absorbers and struts are two completely different parts.

 

The shock absorber is a damping mechanism that controls bounce. Their main purpose is improving ride quality. Unlike springs that are meant to store and release the same amount of energy, shock absorbers are meant to absorb and dissipate it. This is the reason why your car doesn’t endlessly bounce up and down after you drive over a pothole.

 

The strut, on the other hand, is a structural component that carries the weight of the vehicle. It is mounted inside the coil spring and is connected to the body of the vehicle and the hub carrier. Most modern vehicles feature a MacPherson strut. An assembly combines these parts together into one component.

 

How does a shock absorber and strut assembly work?

This assembly combines your car’s spring, shock absorber, and strut into one serviceable component. The shock absorbers are made up of chambers containing gas or liquid and a perforated piston.

 

As the wheels drive over bumps or rough roads, the piston is pushed inside the chamber. The gas or liquid is then forced through tiny holes. This movement lessens the amount of energy transferred from the road into the chassis of the vehicle.

 

At the same time, the struts prevent your car from squatting or dipping when you suddenly accelerate or apply the brakes. It helps your vehicle maintain curb height and reduce tire wear.

 

What are the types of Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assemblies?

There are two types of shock absorber and strut assemblies: monotube and twin-tube designs.

Monotube

Monotube shock absorbers feature a single-cylinder chamber, divided into two sections. One section holds gas while the older stores the liquid. This type of shock absorber features an internal piston which is wider than the twin-tube design.

Twin-tube

Twin-tube shock absorbers feature dual cylinders. One chamber houses the piston, while the other acts as a reservoir for the liquid or gas.

 

Finding the right fit

There have been twelve generations of the Toyota Corolla, each generation with parts of varying sizes. To ensure the proper fit for your car, use our website’s search engine. Simply input your car’s correct year, make, and model to browse through our selection of related parts.

 

How much is a Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assembly?

The cost of a shock absorber and strut assembly varies depending on your Corolla’s specific model year. OEM replacement parts typically cost anywhere between $50 and $350. Assemblies are typically sold individually, in sets of two, or as part of a kit.

 

Signs of a faulty shock absorber and strut assembly

Problems with your car’s shocks and struts can greatly affect ride comfort. As soon as you notice one or more of these symptoms, it is recommended to have your vehicle checked by your trusted mechanic.

 

Tapping noises

Worn out shocks and struts can make muffled or tapping noises while driving over potholes and uneven roads. The noise may come from cracked bushings connecting the shocks to the chassis.

 

Uneven tire wear

Uneven tire wear, characterized by excessively worn sections, is also another common sign of a bad shock absorber. A worn-out shock would be unable to keep constant tire contact on the road, causing more bounce as the vehicle moves.

 

Diminished ride quality

Observe any leaning while your car is cornering. A bad strut will make your car slower to retain its height after a tight turn. You should also watch out for any nosediving from the front end of the car while applying brakes. Faulty shocks will also make the riding experience bouncier, so much so that you may even feel it on the steering wheel.

 

Fluid leaks

Check for any signs of oil leaks or film coating on the shock housing. This could indicate a loss in hydraulic oil in the strut.

 

Why is replacing your car’s shock absorber and strut assembly important?

Your car’s shocks and struts are important components of your car’s suspension system. Leaving a faulty or worn-out shock and strut assembly can significantly diminish your vehicle’s ride comfort and handling. The general recommendation is to have an assembly replaced every 50,000 to 100,000 miles.

 

Replacement of these parts may be needed earlier, depending on the road conditions you drive in. If these parts are rusted, it is also vital to have them replaced to protect other parts of your vehicle from rust and corrosion damage.

Tips to Help You Easily Install a Toyota Corolla Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly

Rough roads and potholes are some of the inevitable stresses that you have to go through when driving. But you don't have to feel battered by these things if you have a fine-quality Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assembly. If your car is ten years or older, then there's a high chance that your shocks and struts might now need replacement. You don't have to stress over it; here are some tips that will help make the installation easier:

Tip #1: Confirm the right amount of torque needed.

As a part of your car's steering and suspension system, you need to ensure that the new shock absorber and strut assembly is properly torqued for safety. You can't just guess or estimate the torque to be applied, as this will affect the performance of your shocks and strut assembly. To find the appropriate torque for your shocks and struts, refer to your vehicle's service manual. If you seem to have lost it, then simply purchase aftermarket manuals specific to your car make, model, and year. The torque required will depend on the bolt size and grade. The bolt size can be easily measured with a ruler, while the bolt grade is found on the head of the bolt.

Tip #2: Replace the shocks in pair.

Though it's rare for the shock and strut assembly to get busted at the same time, it's still best to have them changed in pair. Replacing only one of the shocks may cause your Toyota Corolla to not sit level. Your car's weight will compress the shock after some time, so the other "undamaged" shock will most probably get busted shortly after the first one has worn out. Since these components were installed on your vehicle at the same time, chances are, both of them would have the same lifespan; so change them both to save time and effort.

Tip #3: Remove the sway bar if needed.

Stabilizing your ride involves the sway bar along with the strut assembly. To easily install your new Toyota Corolla shock absorber and strut assembly, you have to remove the mounting bracket using a socket wrench. Turn the sway bar out of the way to detach the old strut.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some common problems in getting an aftermarket shock and strut assembly for the Toyota Corolla?

Shock absorbers need to be installed in such a way that the right balance of stiffness is achieved between the front and rear suspensions. A front suspension that's too stiff will lead to over-steering while an excessively stiff rear suspension can cause under-steering. When installing aftermarket struts to lower the vehicle, care should be taken that enough ground clearance remains. A car that's too close to the ground will encounter problems with speed bumps and rough, uneven roads—underside components like the oil pan and the exhaust system can get seriously damaged.

 

What benefits can a performance aftermarket shock absorber and strut assembly give to a Toyota Corolla?

Performance shock absorbers allow a car to cope with the demands of intense driving applications like street racing. For casual drivers, aftermarket shocks can provide added comfort and even improved gas mileage. Aftermarket struts are often used to lower a Corolla's suspension, which improves its handling and gives it a sportier look.

 

Where is the strut assembly located in a Toyota Corolla?

Many Toyota Corollas use a front strut assembly. This can be located by removing the front wheels, lifting the front of the car, and looking underneath to find the coiled springs and the hardware going through them and onto both ends. Some models, however, use a rear strut assembly, which is accessed by removing the rear wheels and lifting the rear of the vehicle.

 

When should the shock absorber and strut assembly on a Toyota Corolla be replaced?

Some experts would recommend replacing shocks and struts every 60,000 miles. Another way is to look out for signs of damage or wear and tear. Problems with the strut assembly can be indicated by frequent popping or clunking sounds, worn-out tires, and steering difficulties. Bumps that are sharply felt and excessive vibrations while driving can mean a problem with your suspension springs. Excessive up-and-down bouncing is a symptom of faulty shock absorbers. Struts and shocks should always be replaced in pairs.
