Toyota RAV4 2003 Rear Coil Spring and Shock Abosorber Replacement
This video shows how to replace a rear coil springs and shocks in a RAV4. These are not struts, but the Toyota system that has separate coil spring and shocks. My P-side coil spring broke and was making noise. The procedure is not hard, but need a floor jack and must use a hex key when removing stabilizer bar, so rear control arm can lower to release spring. ****It is easier to disconnect the upper connection for stablizer bar. In video, I start on lower one, but then figured out that upper disconnects easier. You have to use hex key so that it doesn't spin. Getting the coil spring out and in is a trick. Make sure you have lifted car enough to be able to press that lower control arm down, and the spring pops out. Getting it back in, you have to twist it and make sure you have clearance (see video). Be safe and make sure you use floor jacks and a good floor jack with good distance of lift. My cheapy floor jack worked, but barely (I needed more height). Good luck. This is not hard, but a little bit of time. A slow 2 hours working carefully. A knowledgeable mechanic at home, probably 50 minutes. I got springs on Amazon for $55 for both (thats a great price), and I put Bilstein Shocks in car. Works great now and no noise. This video was posted in July 2012. I allowed Google-Tube to modify video for shaking, and to me, it appeared to be a bad job, so I am reposting my original with no changes.
