    Hi all. Has anyone had their Rav4 lifted in the GTA area? If so, where did you get it done? Thanks.

    Love my car, but with the recent additions of a heavy roof top tent, a heavy bike rack, and loading the car up with gear and friends I'm finding I've started to bottom out on bumpy off-road terrain. I've been looking at options for improving my clearance under these heavy loads - my local...

    Hello All, I am new to this forum. I will be installing some Eibach springs on my 2020 TRD RAV4 this weekend and had trouble finding the torque values for all of the front/rear suspension components. I have found some websites with pictures and corresponding values for both the front and rear...
  4. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hello all, I recently took my Rav into my mechanic to get looked at and he said the front struts are shot. Now I love the guy, but I've run into the issue of him using basically the cheapest part to fix the problem and that isn't really my forte. I've taken it upon myself to find some new...

    Today while swapping my tires I noticed my front left shock absorber was leaking oil and both front boots are ripped. I believe a rear shock is also leaking oil. I have had the vehicle for about 160,000 km. I am going to buy new front strut assemblies and rear shocks, I would like to know what...
  7. 4.1 D.I.Y. and Modifications
    I've spent a good amount of time on sites like nengun and blackhawkjapan searching for JDM items for my RAV. Found some suspension springs from companies I'm unfamiliar with. This is my first Toyota I've gone crazy tuning and swapping. Wondering if anyone has any experience with any of the...

    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...

    Looking to upgrade my 2017 Rav 4 shocks/suspension / add a skid plate, high exhaust pipe and upgrade tires to tackle more mountain passes/forest service roads. All together the packages and installation is about $3800. At that price, I'm wondering if I should just Sell my Rav4 for a 4x4 truck...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 4.3 General
    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...
  13. 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...

    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...
  15. 4.3 Mechanical
    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.
  18. 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...
