How to Replace Control Arms and Bushings to Fix a Bouncy Suspension

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!

    Hey Chris...I been following your videos. I replaced my rotors front suspension. When I put new hoses onto the new calipers, the old brake line broke. Then I pumped too much grease from a grease gun into my brand new passenger side upper A arm on my 96 Yukon. Is it use-able or now trash and blown? Need a video for snapping the old brake line, maybe a coupler and what to do if you overfill a ball joint with grease. Thanks man.

    Thanks for stressing safety in your videos Chris! Used to work with with a really good mechanic that was always flaunting safety. One day he had put jack stands in himself so I asked him why he was suddenly being safe. He said because his cousin had just died...suffocated under a car that fell on him.

    Chris I noticed that whilst the new bushing has no play, there is still a very small amount of play (maybe 1-2mm?) between the bolt and the metal sleeve inside the bushing? Is this acceptable? I have some play between my new hardware and new control arm bushing sleeves and have had trouble finding out if this is going to be a problem. Thanks!
