Installing PRT Complete Strut Assemblies (VIDEO)

Toyota Camry 2017-2022 Strut Installation (VIDEO)

Here are the installation procedures to follow when installing complete strut assemblies. This video is sponsored by PRT.

This is a 2020 Toyota Camry LE, these same steps apply to 2017 and newer Camry models. Make sure you check the trim and engine before you order parts. These are the tools required for the job. Remove the front wheels, use a 17-millimeter box or a combination wrench in a six-millimeter male Allen socket to remove the sway bar length. Next, remove the plastic clip that secures the abs harness to the lower mountain clamp of the strut. Using a 14-millimeter socket remove the bolt that holds the bracket for the brake hose to the strut.

Remove the two bolts that secure the strut to the knuckle. This will require a 22-millimeter socket and wrench. Under the hood are three 14-millimeter nuts that hold the upper strut mount to the vehicle, remove the strut from the vehicle. The PRT complete strut assembly can save up to 50% on repair time versus the traditional strut assembly where the technician has to remove the spring and upper strut mount. PRT complete strut units include OE quality components in a preassembled unit restoring the original performance of the vehicle. PRT complete strut assemblies are designed to replace the strut and bearing plate all in one preassembled unit. Each PRT complete strut assembly integrates the premium strut, bearing plate, coil spring, dust cover, and spring seat all together so that the installer can change the complete assembly conveniently and easily. Loosely tighten three nuts on the upper strut tower, do not tighten completely until the weight is on the wheels.

This happens to reduce binding. Install the bolts that hold the knuckle to the strut, tighten the bolts to 214 foot-pounds. Loosely tighten three nuts on the upper strut tower. Reposition the brake line bracket and tighten the bolt to 21 foot-pounds. Snap the wheel speed sensors backing to the square hole on the new strut. Install the wheel, and tighten the nuts to 75 foot-pounds. Tighten the upper strut mount bolts to 37 foot-pounds. Perform a four-wheel alignment. PRT or Performance Ride Technology shares its heritage with one of the largest manufacturers of shocks, struts, and complete strut assemblies in the world. PRT products are produced and tested under the strictest OE quality processes required by leading automakers in five modern and fully automated plants using the latest technology available.

Welcome to the Lubegard Limited Slip Supplement overview. Clutch-based limited slip differentials are common on many automotive applications like trucks and SUVs, but they present a unique problem. These differentials often use different clutch configurations, either cone or flat type, made with various materials and frictional requirements. When both wheels have ample traction, the clutch plates bind together tightly, sending consistent power to each wheel. When one wheel slips, additional power is sent to the other wheel based on the frictional properties of the clutch packs. This is where the gear lubricants frictional properties play an important role in functionality and performance.
