Learn how to replace the ENTIRE front suspension of your car in this two episode series. Here I will show you how to install a brand new wheel bearing, ball joints, control arms, tie rod, strut, and axle.
The ball joint and wheel bearing has to be pressed into the knuckle and I have a bunch of tips and tricks to make that easy. I show how to properly install a tie rod (safely) and get an accurate measurement so you can get the car aligned. I also show you how to properly torque down bolts with bushings so you don't tear them. The rest of the suspension parts are pretty simple to install and then we go for a ride to see how much better the car handles!

    Great work Chris ! What an amazing video step by step on how to do this , makes a lot of people starting out more confident in doing this on there own now . You’ve mentioned all the little details that can eventually lead to major issues down the line if not done properly. And just the enthusiasm in your tone on what you do just makes your videos much more interesting for the viewers . Literally spent my whole 26 minutes amazed 👍🏻 great job !
