The 'strut-guts' would be supplied to Toyota's specifications. The Camry
suspension is superb. On inspection is uses unique architecture with crafted
parts which have a unique shape. All this is designed to give a perfect ride
and handling. They have a very wide track for their size and this alone
imparts incredible cornering stability.

You are kidding. THe Camry is a soft riding car with mediocre
handling. No one buys it because it handles like a race car (it
doesn't).

Entitled to your opinion, though a hard riding car does not mean advanced
engineering. Virtually any tank can be made to corner by reducing suspension
movement.

Gas charged, (nitrogen I believe) to reduce fade.

Check any objective review. The Camry handling is mediocre. Toyota
tends to make soft suspensions and emphasizes smooth ride over
handling. It is possible to make great handling smooth suspensions
but is very expensive. You would have to get a BMW but even so the
suspension won't be as soft as the Camry.

Yeah,...well I think vehicle ride and handling has a subjective component as
well,....perhaps I should compare the Camry to other mid-sized cars rather
than what we call 'faull size sedans' ie Ford Falcon.

One thing I noticed on the Camry's suspension components is they are are
unusual in appearance compared to other cars. The angles and bends in come
of the front sispenion/steering arms is quite odd and made me come to the
conclusion that it represented complex geometric design.
Have you checked one out?
