Default 1999 Camry Le V6 Front End Rattle

I have a rattle on the front right of my 99 Camry that can only be heard at
at certain speeds and on certain types of bumps. I have heard a little
about the Upper Strut Mount issue with Camry 99 but I would apprecaite any
insight anyone can provide about this problem. I don't want to go to a
Toyota Dealer and get ripped off if I don't have a clue about what is
going on. Thanks for your insight/comments!!!

Yup, its the strut tower problem...
They finally got the new tower part
after 2000 I think. My 97 had that
horrible rattle since new. I had new
towers put in and factory shocks
and it was perfect now.
I think the towers are about $70 each..

Is the Strut Tower the same as the Strut Mount?

They will know what it is by calling
it the tower or mount, they should
they have replaced thousands of them
by now.

Is this an American car. I have a similar problem with mine, 99 Camry
Conquest V6 sedan, Australian.
Had struts replace all round, and sway bar rubbers. Now I have a small
clunk at slow speeds. I thought it might be brake pads loose in the
calipers.
Can you replace the strut tower mount separately?

My mechanic called them sway bushings. They sound horrible but he
told me that I could go awhile before they were replaced. Sort of
sounds like something hitting occassionally at random times. I forget
the costs but I think it was over $100.
