Steering effort is very high. Lubricating the knuckle with WD40 alleviates the problem, but only temporarily.
How much does it cost to replace the steering knuckle? on 2002 Toyota Camry
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?
