ST-165 Front Hub and Strut

Postby JohnNK » Fri Apr 15, 2011 7:10 am

I just noticed that the front passenger side hub has a sheared lug. What is the best source for replacement hubs. I also noticed that the front strut slips away from the top mounting bolts when I lifted the car to pull the wheels. I am unfamiliar with the Celica strut assembly. Do I need to replace the strut or the outer spring assembly that bolts to the upper fender area and stabilizer bar? Thanks for your advice.

You will have to take apart the hub (without damaging the bearing) to change the broken stud (if it has ABS) (I just rebuild mine completely). The strut problem you might have to replace just the strut mount (I had the same problem when I bought my car).
As you can see in the back of the sud is the ABS ring, so you cannot just push-it (press it) out.
