Default 1992 SE suspension replacement

Hi all, Can anyone recommend a decent quality aftermarket replacement
shocks and struts for a 1992 Camry SE? Most places just call up the
same numbers as the standard model. Obviously I am not going racing,
just want to preserve the original specifications, which were a bit
sportier than standard. Thanks!

Most of the aftermarket shocks are the same regardless of if for a 4
cylinder or a V6 - much less by the trim model. Kyb, Koni and Bilstein are
stiffer than original struts so go with one of those --- or the OEM ones
from the dealer.

ok, thanks much. The SE version was not just trim differences, it had a
few mechanical differences as well including firmer suspension- so it
looks like your suggestions will be perfect. Cheers, dave

I wouldn't go with KYB (Keep Your Bilstein) GR-2. But if you really
want to save money I think they are about $69-79 each online. The OEMs
are overpriced re-badge. For the money you are better off with a
Bilstein or a cheaper Tokico (plus some others mentioned).

Yes - I have '03 SE - Bigger brakes, stiffer shocks, rear discs (on 4 cyl),
Strut bars, bigger sway bars, and 16" different alloy wheels w/Michelin
tires. Rest is cosmetic: leather steering wheel and shifter knob,
different gauges w/orange lighting, different seats and trim and the rear
spoiler (now optional). Makes for sportier ride. Wish they offered the extra
body panels like the Corolla S.
