    Do Toyota US OEM parts fit Toyota Japanese cars if the part numbers match?

      Sounds to me like he hit a curb VERY hard, knocking loose some steering/suspension components. I would suspect a tie rod end is worn or a control arm bushing/ball joint.

    Harmonic sound when turning slowing (like into a parking space)
    started after having front wheel bearings and front brake pads replaced. First only made noise occasionally now every drive. Returned it to shop, they cannot (or will not) find problem. Have taken it back to them 5 times.

    When applying brake, there is a shivering experienced on the steering.
    This is more frequently noticed when I apply the brakes at speeds above 70km per hour. I changed the brake pads and put in all new tires.....but the problem persists.

      There are common problems that cause your steering wheel to shake when you apply the brakes. In order from least expensive to most, they are: dry guide pins, worn brake pads, and worn rotors.

      It’s generally recommended if you replace the rotors, you replace the brakes, and grease the guide pins. Or if you’re just replacing the brakes, you also grease the guide pins. Now, if your brakes are still good, you could just grease the guide pins. Most of this can be done with a basic set of tools. Replacing rotors, however, is a little more involved. In either case, this if what it takes to get the job done.

    When turning my steering wheel, to the left or right from a dead stop i have a whining noise
    coming from my steering wheel. I was told there is a u-joint to grease that is underneath the steering column, if not there where else would there be one to possibly grease to make the whining noise go away

    Why does your site only provide FRONT AXLE SEAL options and doesn't even show rear axle options.? There are a number of
    problems with the methodology of your site and the answers it provides. Just missing whole parts such as this issue.

      Can you be more specific - which options or repair aspect on the AutoMD website are you referring to?

      If you are referring to the 'How-To-Guides' recognize these are volunteer and amateur videos - and photos - so not every detail needed for your particular repair task may be included.

      You may also research the following website for more repair information; www.autozone.com.

    I have a 2003 Camry SE. The ride has always been a little too firm for me compared to the LE or XLE.
    I am replacing the struts. Would complete struts (with springs aready loaded) such as aftermarket Unity Part # 4-11701-15341-001 designed for Camry and Lexus fit on my SE? I am hoping this would give my SE the XLE type of ride.

    Not sure why my car is pulling
    Car has been pulling slightly to the right, not a dangerous amount but just enough for me to have to counterbalance it while driving. I've had an alignment done, changed the tires, new axle and still stumped
