    Have a 2021 sienna limited. With kids in van and suitcases in trunk there is a noticeable sag in the rear when loaded. We have a tow hitch (for bike rack). Even with no bikes or rack attached, the hitch bottoms out when we go over a speed bump or driveway at even the slowest speeds. Is this a...

    My parents drive a 2000 Sienna with over 151000 miles. Last week, I noticed the wheel leaning in towards the top on the driver's side. When taking the wheel and drum brake off, I noticed a large crack in rear axle beam running towards the rear spring. My question: Would this...

    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.

    Hi, I just bought a 06 Sienna XLE AWD(170k miles) having thought of lifting and converting it to a camper van in mind of adventuring Alaska for this summer - currently reside in Colorado. Having 170k of high miles, I'd better replace other parts while I am lifting the van. Before ordering the...

    Hi everyone. I've tried searching the forum I've tried google, either the answer doesn't exist or I'm not smart enough to ask the right question. I hope the latter. I have a 2011 XLE FWD 8 passenger I would like to replace the rear coils springs. The van a a bit of rear sag when unloaded...

    Hello Folks, Wanted to express thanks to the forum and members. Had recently performed quite a few repairs to my 2004 Sienna and got a lot of tips, torque values, etc from the forum, so thanks to all the contributing members. For those interested, here is the back story: Purchased a 2004...

    Brand new to this forum and doing some research before I buy a 3rd gen. I am the current owner of a beater 2nd gen - basically a backup car - and a one time owner of a manual transmission Previa! I'm looking to buy an AWD, maybe 2014-2016, and I'd like to have it set up for trips to the snowy...

    I'm replacing my struts and shocks and was looking for torque specs. Also need specs for front stabilizer links. I bought KYB for the front and back. For the struts their website says 66ft/lbs for top bolts and 184ft/lbs for the bottom. I saw a youtube video that said the rear shock specs...
  10. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    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...
  11. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Hey guys. I drive a 2006 Sienna le. Whenever I go over speed bumps the front tires go over fine, but the rear tires seem to catch the bumps then the rear kinda drops after the bump. I suspect it could be that the rear shocks need replacement(which I can possibly do myself). Obviously if I go...

    My 2000 SE has aged nicely for 170k miles. However, recently when making a turn I heard what sounded like a rear shock give way, only to pull over and see the entire rear left shock assembly hanging around the wheel. I limped it to the dealer as I was flying the next day. Sloane Toyota (near...

    Our 2013 Sienna is making a snap or pop sound on the front drivers side near the front wheel, during braking and other times. I found that the rear bushing on the wishbone on both sides of the vehicle are going to pieces but the drivers side is the worst. Is the bushing a replacement part or do...
  16. Anything Sienna
    Dear Sienna-ites: I just purchased a used (2006) Sienna and am driving it up from SC to NY. I think I have overloaded the minivan however, because the backend sinks lower to the ground than the front end. This can't be good. I have already driven from FL to SC with the Sienna overloaded, but...

    Could someone please give me the torque specifications for a 2006 Sienna? I have been looking everywhere for this and have been unsuccessful. I have replaced all four, but am unsure what the torque specifications should be. Thanks in advance.

    Apologies if this has been mentioned and I'm bad at searching, but I didn't see any mention of the Megan Racing subframe brace for the 3rd gen Sienna. I purchased this brace along with the tower strut brace and decided to install the lower brace first to see how the ride quality changed with...

    Hello, All: I absolutely love my 98 Sienna LE with 158K miles. It' not too big or too small, and will comfortably seat 6 adults + luggage (but I did add rear coil spring air bags). HOWEVER, lately I have noticed a variety of squeaks and chirps coming from the entire front end. I replaced...
