Steering effort is very high. Lubricating the knuckle with WD40 alleviates the problem, but only temporarily.

2002 Toyota Camry Question: How much does it cost to replace the steering knuckle?

There are several models in the Camry line and engine sizes, if it is a Camry sedan with a 4cyl. engine, to replace the steering rack and pinion, the labor time is about 5 hours and then you will need a front end alignment. You can get a price for the steering rack from Autozone.

I have a 02 Camry but it is a V6 there is a disagreement whether I can replace the steering knuckle without replacing the whole column or not. Can you please advise your opinion?
