    KYB lists struts for a 2005 but doesn't say they will fit the AWD. The numbers are SR4177 & SR4178. Does anyone know if these work on the AWD or just the FWD? I've written KYB five times and no answer. The shocks you must swap springs on and buy mounting kits for are 33453 & 33452 which are a...

    Can the front struts from the 2008 FWD Sienna (full assemblies w/springs, like Monroe 172363/172364) be used on a 2008 AWD Sienna (like Monroe 172365/172366)? Looks like the FWD ones are 0.4" shorter when extended, and compress 0.874" more than the AWD models. Is it possible to mount the FWD...

    Our cargo door no longer stays open. It's a problem with both of our struts. (van went to the shop today) I hear this is a 5 minute fix. I also found struts on amazon that are supposed to work. The service center says the struts are $250 each. The ones on amazon are $20.44. That's a huge...

    Right after I finish the job and look on Oreillys I see KYB is now offering their own version of Quick Struts called Strut Plus for our generation of vans! Good for those who don't want to mess with coil springs. Also makes changing the strut/spring way easier. $213 each for 7 passenger vans...

    The struts have gone on my 2008 Sienna. I've been trying to find a seller here in Canada and have found one on Amazon - http://www.amazon.ca/ARANA-Tailgate-Liftgate-Support-2004-2010/dp/B00QICG8LY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431467147&sr=8-1&keywords=sienna+struts But reading the reviews the people...

    Hey all, does anyone have any experience with pre-loaded struts? My 06 Sienna's driver side strut bit the dust and I'd rather not go through all the hassle of getting someone with a compressor to swap the coils to the new struts.. Are they worth it? Anyone have any brands they would recommend...

    My 2012 XLE has 39,000 miles and the lift gate bonked my wife on the head. I called the dealer. They said it was out of warranty (which I knew). I told them I was surprised at the quick failure considering they faced a recall issue in 2005 & 2006. They wouldn't budge. That makes me pretty angry...

    I have a 2011 Xle with 59000 miles on it. I was putting on new snow tires today and Midas told me and showed me my struts are blown. The drivers side had a lot of oil leaked out and the passenger side showed some moderate oil leakage. Both them and the dealer quoted about $1000 to replace both...

    I recently got a 2001 Sienna and like it very much. It is due for shocks & struts and I would very much like to install heavy duty (firmer) shocks. I have installed HD Bilsteins on several cars and hoped to put them on the Sienna but they are not offered. I love the HD Bilsteins because the...

    Just a feedback. Trunk/lift gate in my 2004 Sienna was opening super long, getting to the height where I could hit it with my head and sometimes closing by itself after a minute or so. I've just replaced the lift gate struts with the ones from the link below and whoa what a difference. It opens...

    Getting ready to install a set of Prime Choice Quick Struts into my 01' Sienna. They appear to be the appropriate strut assembly for the car. However, when I have the top 3 bolts lined up properly, the part that attached to the steering knuckle won't line up. Best I can do leaves them pointed...

    After replacing both front struts and sway bar links the sway bar is now a lot lower In fact, the sway bar is almost resting on top of the lower control arm (on both sides). Is it possible that the top part of the strut assembly (the flange that attaches to the vehicle) is oriented the wrong...

    Have a 2012 SE with 20k on the odometer and the front struts are leaking already. Anybody else have this problem and will factory warranty cover this kind of thing?

    Hello, Can anyone recommend a site for a good quality replacement 2004 XLE LTD bumper/ radar cruise, OEM or CAPA and give me your experience locating new front struts for an AWD. I would like to pick them up in Buffalo to save cross border freight and duty. I have used Rock Auto prior but the...

    I have a 2006 Toyota Seinna I bought new. I have had all service. It has 148,000 miles. The right front tire area started making a loud noise when you hit a bump. I took it to Toyota. They replaced struts and rear shocks cost over $1,000 but did not fix the problem. Any suggestions. The front...

    So I got new struts and shocks on my Sienna about 3 months ago. Since they were installed we've noticed a very bumpy ride - we feel and hear all the bumps in the road. Over smooth roads no issues however. We've been patiently waiting hoping that this would just go away but to date it has not...

    The rear door on the Sienna is not staying up after 7 years. I guess I have to replace the struts. I am sure some of you have replaced them. Can anyone recommend some good brands. I looked at local and online stores and see Monroe, Mighty lifts, Strong Arm, Sachs (sp), AMS... Thanks

    i've done strut replacements on corollas, celicas, mr2s, and i've never had to use a spring compressor because the load was very light. I was wondering if i need a spring compressor for a sienna? Has anyone ever done it without a spring compressor?

    Our 2006 Limited power liftgate is struggling to reach full extension height and is becoming a problem for my head. RockAuto has Monroe and Strong Arm replacements. About $16 each for Monroe and $23 for Strong Arm. Havn't checked Toyota oem cost. Any experience with this replacement and what...
