Default 1995 Camry Wagon Spring Upper Seat

In my 1995 Camry Wagon I changed my front struts and springs and the
drivers side did not have a Spring Upper Seat in it. The passenger side
had one. The Haynes manual shows one (not side specific), but I've also
seen an online Camry repair manual that didn't identify one. On the
driver's side a clunking noise has developed about two weeks after the
install of the new struts, and suspect its the upper support. I am
confident I seated the the strut properly. I did it wrong once on
another car and learned from that mistake. Anyone know if I'm actually
missing the Spring Upper Seat or not??

Thanks,
dmend

The upper insulator had fallen apart usually the bellows degrades. What is
the spring setting against ? This could be the cause of the noise.You may
need to an upper insulator. Here's a link that should help in the future..

==============
You have to buy that part separately - it includes the bellows and is
required for both sides.

Both sides have the upper insulator. Is the bellow something different?
Ouch! A trip to the dealer--that hurts already.

That's the online manual I saw. It doesn't mention the Spring Upper
Seat at all.
Replaced the drivers side upper insulator. The upper support sets on it
and the spring is beneath it.

You say the online manual did not show all the parts.
Try the Toyota factory service manual:
http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/
Section is called "Suspension and Axle."
Undoubetly best to use Toyota parts, however you can price match online.
