Learn how to replace control arms and bushings to fix a car with a bouncy suspension. I show you how to figure out what is causing the bounce (shocks or bushings) and then I show you how to replace the upper and lower trailing arms and install new poly bushings. Then we take the DriftStang to the track and test her out!

    @ChrisFix I need help ASAP what can cause a 95' ram 2500 V10 non dually 2wd to not have reverse??! I am aware this truck has high mileage with over half a million miles but was a daily driver and still has all other gears, how can this be fixed is it easy or a major priced bill?? Also note it had regular maintenance, it was a little low on trans fluid but even when topped off it's still the same problem I've googled it but nothing on this specific truck

    Love your vids man. I've got a project truck (96 gmc 4.3L c1500 SL 2wd). My grandfather gave it to me, and it has lots of rust on the frame, so i took the box off and im currently wire wheeling off all the rust. Gotta replace the rusty fuel tank, filler neck, and sending unit, needs new bumpers, control arms, and pretty much a new exaust system, and new catalytic converter ( even though we don't have emission testing here), and a new windshield. Let me know if you wanna help haha.

    Yesterday when I tried to replace oil in my car I could not unscrew crankcase bolt because it was tighten too much. I unscrewed it by smashing bolt with tools I got. At the same time I tried to not damage crankcase and because of this it took hours to unscrew that bolt. Chris please make a video about how to unscrew a bolt which could not be unscrewed by socket set.

    Old bushings were taking abuse , falling apart and protecting metal parts. With more stuff bushings forces will go further than rubber...

    Hi Chris my name is Trish from Hawaii. Before even owning my first car I've watched your videos and you always gave me that motivation that I could fix my own car if it ever gave me problems. Well the day had came and my coworker has brought me my first car that I love so much. She dose come with her little quarks like a squeaking suspension. Two major things has happened since working on my suspension a bolt snapped off in the body of the car :( then working on my rear upper control arm the bolts are in super tight areas where getting a ratchet or sockets is nearly impossible but I still have hope. Any suggestions on doing snapped bolts extractions and removing those hard to get to bolts? I drive a 2005 nissan altima. Thank you for all your helpful videos.
