    I have a 1998 Sienna XLE that hauls my tools (Automotive Technician) and extra for my son and I. What reputable brands have you trusted for the rear springs and shocks? Need something heavy-duty because when the rear bounces my rear wheels scrap. Thank you.

    I have done a lot of searching and it seems my problem is a little different than most. When I first bought the vehicle the A/C all worked normally. After a few months the A/C button would no longer stay in the "on" position, when you pushed it the light would come on and the A/C would engage...
