97 Toyota Avalon sways left and rich when driving. The car fishtails and spins out.bSeems trailing arm bushing needs to be replaced?

I bought new trailing arm but how to uninstall old one and install new trailing arm?

had compressor clutch replaced still not blowing cold air. fro past few months a/c dash light would blink but I would push the button--turn it off and then push again to turn it back on and it would work fine. but just this past week that trick doesn't work anymore. tried a new MC a/c relay fuse and that didn't work. mechanic says he replaced the compressor unit because clutch bolt was stripped and not engaging. still didn't solve my issue. what next/ something electrical still?

I have not had any problems with my Toyota car until this major problem came up?

This started a month ago. It would start at first but the more it locked up the less it would start turning the car on. Now the car will not start at all. The key will not unlock past the accessories.

97 Toyota Avalon (V6) with 162,000 miles. However, the engine was rebuilt (due to a recall) by Toyota back at 89K. The Check engine light first came on last week. I tried to do a reset and it worked for about a day and then the light came back on. I realize I will need to have it looked at but I was hoping for a little heads up on the possible causes for the light being on. Thanks,

my avalon has a wiper always on problem and i cant find a relay for it (just a fuse)
