How to Rebuild the Entire Front Suspension in your Car or Truck

күнү жарыяланды 2019-ж., 12-апр.
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 KG-tv that the video was posted? Also when you watched the video, was there a screen that said "this video was flagged by the KG-tv 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!

The focus runs like a champ, have had it for five years and the engine is great! Only problem is the suspension, the potholes in Michigan are so bad, and I can hear alot of noise coming from the suspension parts. This video has motivated me to replace the whole thing this spring, when I'm not driving it anymore. Thanks Chris! Looks like this car should be lasting me another five years!
