I have a 2004 Rav4 S 4wd with 118K miles. I did an oil change and tire rotation this past Saturday morning, also i wanted to check the struts because of rattling i hear when going over bumbs. The struts show no signs of oil leakage and the piston has no oil on it, however the strut boots are shot. Do i have a bad bearing mounting plate? I believe all the springs are original as well as the struts because they all have paint on them like what they would put on during assembly. The struts are KYB as the rear shocks. The shocks have no paint on them, newer? I want to install an OME suspension and this might be a good time, what do you guys think.
