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!

My only knock --you make it seem too damn easy! Lol Simply awesome videos and I'm actually thinking about getting a cheap car to rebuild now. Of course, I'll be cussing up a storm as i fix it but I'll look to your vids to get me through the process! Oh yeah, I'll be sure to stock up on a couple of gallons of "medium strength thread locker" before I start. Lolol

@ChrisFix: How much did this entire replacement cost? What do you think the average cost would be for a Honda or Toyota car?

Great video very helpful. Also HUGE thanks for pointing out the importance of talking care of the loaner tools! Sucks getting home just to find out the piece you need is broken, bent, or missing.

Could you do a suspension rebuild for a solid axle setup? And if you have to revisit it and explain the difference between the two. Love the work man. Keep it coming!

I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!!! You've just blazed the trail for my next project. I'm wantin' to flip out the front end in my 03PT and the components in your car here are remarkably similar to my ride. You helped me out with simple explanations and that shaves a lot of angst right off the top, ya know? Thanx bro!

It's really good to see these things so that you're not completely mystified by car parts like me lol im 25 and just now trying to learn because paying ppl to do this sucks. The more comfortable you are with it the easier it'll be when you start doing it for yourself

Is it the same steps and parts for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Is this ideal for a DIY or should be left to the professionals. Roughly how much did you spend on the whole suspension. Thanks in advance.

Great video, nice work! May already has been commented but when pressing the hub, it must be pressed against the inner race and not the outer race so that there is not transfer of the (pressing) force through the bearing balls. Cheers!
