Default Camry Radiator Support?

Hello a.a.t.c., I was looking for a radiator for my 99 Camry on eBay and
noticed there were parts called a "Radiator Support" being sold. Is this
a part that needs to be changed often? I don't believe that I've seen
this sold for other cars. What's the scoop with these things? Thanks in
advance.

Unless this is damaged in a collision, you shouldn't need this. Maybe
the rubber grommets (feet) for some radiators if these rotted out over
the years.

Well I was rather surprised to see 50 of them listed so I figured the
Camry had a problem with these things breaking. In my case, I seem to
have problems with these thing hitting the tire stops when parking. They
should make these things with a bit more clearance.

I thought normally it was the *lower subframe* that was scratching --
too low. Well, IMO, Toyota's cheap suspension designs don't win
awards.

The radiator support just helps hold the rad to the chassis, slightly
higher than the subframe. You shouldn't normally be scratching it go
over bumps/ramps.There are the plastic scoops sticking down from the
support that most Camrys lose after a few years because of the low
clearance problem.
