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!

Buy parts from companies in the USA. If you buy overseas, a good portion of the money LEAVES THE COUNTRY. Buying American keeps the money in the states and makes us all richer.

When torquing down lugs nuts on a car the wheel assembly should still be supported by the jack.

Hey Chris, Thinking that an all wheel drive car would be a good next project as a lot of things can be more difficult to fix! I own a 3000gt vr4 and would really appreciate it, if it happened.

Why not just make your own dust shield? They look rather simplistic and with a vice and a sheet metal hammer it should take too long to build

Chris I really enjoyed watching your clutch replacement video. I have a 2003 Tacoma 4cyl 4x2 and I'm wondering if my front coil springs needs to be replaced and my steering rack boots cracked and oily but I'm not losing steering fluid. Thx
