  1. 4.5 Exterior
    Hello everyone, I just recently installed the ready lift 2” lift on my 2019 RAV4 Premium AWD and whenever I hit a pothole or small bump there is a clunk/click noise on both the front sides. I can drive over a speed bump with both wheels hitting at the same time and it will not make a noise but...

  3. 4.4 Mechanical
    Hi Rav4 Friends! Looking for some help. I've been having an issue with the Rav bucking to the left when taking a right hand turn at highway speeds. It's like a wallowing feeling. Not necessarily translating to the steering wheel but feels like the body is bucking back left. I had the front...
  4. 4.4 Exterior
    I am looking to upgrade my stock 2014 LE AWD. I want to get a more offroad look and need new tires so I figured it would be a good time to upgrade. I just want to know what size wheel and tire combinations would work on the stock suspension setup or if I would need to upgrade the suspension to...

    Hey all I own a 2011 Limited V6 and I love the car and speed, but I want to get a little more juice out of it. Only things that come to mind is getting an upgraded exhaust system, cold air intake, and maybe lowering the suspension for better handling. But I'm here to ask you guys for any...
  6. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Can someone help me diagnose suspension noises? Where I live there are uneven roads with many potholes. Whenever I hit one, my poor RAV squeaks and creaks with a sound like an old door hinge or bed spring. I get this creaking also if I bounce up and down on the car while it is parked. Turning...
  7. 4.5 Mechanical
    This might be controversial.... everyone loves the RAV4 for off-roading activities, installing lifts kits, mud tires, etc. But I'm looking at to increase the handling of the RAV4 and making it more "sporty". I was cross shopping between the RAV4 and the VW Tiguan. My gut eventually told me to...

    Hi, I am also not sure of the name of the part I am describing, so if anyone could provide a name or part number that would also be appreciated. It's the rubber boot around the front struts directly between the front wheels. Both of them on my 2010 v6 4wd are shredded and the strut is clearly...

    I go offroading and need more ground clearance but the highest kit I can find is 2in. Anyone know if I can lift it higher? She's 4cyl AWD and I just got new 17 crossover tires, not sure that matters as im new to this.
  11. 4.3 Mechanical
    Began noticing that a front end clunk that would happen at slow speeds over rough roads or bumps. I can't relate it to steering it all; it doesn't seem to get worse if I am turning. No extra play or shimmy in the steering either. After some more travel on dirt roads and some big bumps, I managed...

    Hey all. I have been looking into getting a lift kit for my Rav 4 extreme 2003. just wondering if anyone else has had any luck at sourcing one or what tricks people have used to achieve better clearance. Also on a side thought. Has anyone used suspension pieces off different model Toyota’s or a...
  13. 4.3 Mechanical
    Hi Rav4 people Any suggestions on what to replace to restore some lost ride quality. Seems to hit hard but tracks quite well. Replaced rear sway bar links and struts 30k ago. My 08' 2.4 Ltd has 120,00 mi and still chugging along. I'm hoping to keep this on the road till death do us part.
