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!

  • I'm amazed at how knowledgeable you are with fixing and modifying vehicles. Your DIY videos have been a great help. i wish I had someone like you around to help me figure out why I can't get a nice, firm, pedal on my brakes. Thank you for taking the time to thoroughly show us how we can do this stuff ourselves.

  • Hi Chris, I do not know if this is the right place to ask my question, but I’m going to give it a try. First of all, I found your TRvision channel a couple of days ago and since have been watching a lot of videos. Awesome work! Especially the fact you keep everything relatively simple is great! I was especially interested in the Jaguar you stripped as I have an old Volvo, which I am planning to take apart with a friend. I have just a couple of questions though, how were you able to sell so many engine parts of the Jaguar without the car running? How were you sure the specific parts you removed worked? You cant really tell as the car was not running right? Also, how long did it take to sell most of the stuff? Final question, did most people pick up the parts at your house, or were a lot of people asking you to ship it? Would be awesome if you could answer these! I’m gonna watch some more videos 👍🏼 Kind regards, Rutger!

  • Hey Chris can you possibly fit in a drum to disk conversion video somewhere? I really need to do it on my 95 GMC Sierra 1500 and no shop around me has ever done it before? I’m willing but need your guidance lol. We had a big load in it a while back and I’m not sure what happened but I almost lost control of the truck on the road...I’m entirely sure it was due to the drums in the back. Thanks Chris!!

  • @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.
