Learn how to replace the ENTIRE front suspension of your car in this two episode series. First I will show you how to remove the wheel bearing, ball joints, control arms, tie rod, strut, and axle.
The ball joint and wheel bearing has to be pressed out of the knuckle and I have a bunch of tips and tricks to make that easy. The upper control arm ball joint and tie rod can get stuck in the knuckle so I show some tricks on how to easily remove that. The rest of the suspension parts are pretty simple to remove and replace.

Did you guys get notified by USvid that the video was posted? Also when you watched the video, was there a screen that said "this video was flagged by the USvid community and may be offensive" or something like that? Just wanted to check because I had issues last night which is why I had to postpone publishing the video. I hope it's all fixed and you guys learn a lot from the video! Stay tuned for the next video and then for a video that, well, covers a life changing event ;) Also for those asking why I am wondering, here is what happened last night when I went to publish: instagram.com/p/BwI-VOhFkt2/

I’m offended by the fact that I only discovered your channel this year. Your USvid channel is #1 for me. I can’t thank you enough. Totally inspired. I went through some deep depression this year. Your videos renewed my zest for life. I’m eternally in your debt. Sorry to get all deep! But you’re helping people in ways you might not even know.

How do you know if parts meet or exceed OEM? Why not just replace the knuckle too?
Man how the hell did you remove that axle so easily. On that badly of a rusted vehicle? The hell am I doing wrong lol. Axle slide hammer kit, chain+sludge hammer, pry bars and kicking them. Nothing is allowing mine to just 'pop out'. I swear this car is possessed.

I'm confused: if you're literally replacing everything, why not just use an angle grinder to cut all this stuff off?

Why smack the upsidedown nut to get the ball joint out? Easier to hit the arm where the pin sits

like your videos but you should consider showing how the car drives after replacement or repair, your experience like what kind of improvement in, sound , torque, suspension in this case. ...

If it's starting up but just taking a lot of turns then more than likely your car battery is dying either from lack of charge or just being bad. If you can, get it to a parts store (advanceautoparts, Autozone, etc) and bring it inside. They'll test it and charge it for you completely for free. If you do need a new battery they have some decent ones at the store you'll go to until you can afford a completely brand new battery.

Now I had doubts that I could use the hub hammer, it was an intimidating name but when I saw it in action I had realized something. I have been training to use a hub hammer my entire life!

Hey chris, love your videos. Quick question. If you did this and your steering wheel is in its normal spot. The steering isn't tight still after getting it aligned and new wheels. I am thinking rack and pinion. Can you do a video on replacing a rack and pinion?
