  4. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 1)
    I've started to notice a rattle when I go over bumps, and inspecting the rear shocks I see the rubber bushings where they attach at the bottom are dried, shrunken and cracked, and I can manually rattle the shock. The shocks themselves seem to respond fine to a downward push on the bumper, and I...

    So I buy this clear one owner 2005 Sienna that runs like a dream. Not a squeak or rattle during the test dive. Two days later on a rougher road there is a sound of metal to metal clanking. In the process of finding the problem I jacked up the rear to find the top half (plastic dust cover) was...

  13. Problems & Issues
    When I drive out of a particular driveway in my 08 Sienna (we bought used with 33Kmiles) it always seems to scrape as we go into the street. Something on the front gets low enough to scrape the asphalt When I use my dad's 04 Sienna, his van is fine, no scraping. does this mean I need new shocks?
