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

  • Published on Apr 12, 2019
  • 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 USclip that the video was posted? Also when you watched the video, was there a screen that said "this video was flagged by the USclip 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! Stay tuned for the next video and then for a video that, well, covers a life changing event ;)
    Also for those asking why I am wondering, here is what happened last night when I went to publish:

      I was not notified. Yes, it WAS offensive. OFFENSIVELY informative with top notch production.
      I wish I had found your channel years ago when I first started tinkering with vehicles. It was always demoralizing to try and do a basic thing and not have the tools and place to do it. I trudged through it and now I have a shop with nearly anything you could want, minus a lift (unless I see one for cheap lol). I STILL learn from your channel even though I have more of a advantage than most people because believe me I am no mechanic.
      As a side note have you maybe though about instructing people how to make instructional videos? Because I have never found a better How-to, period. Even from "professionals" not just sticking to automotive (with the exception of a Haynes manual, but its not a video). I am very picky about How to's and what I want to see before I attempt something and I really can never find anything that is missing.

    One tip for taking the axle nut off (and anything torqued on tight) is you can put your breaker bar so that you're pushing down and putting your body weight into it, instead of pulling up

    It's cheaper just to rent the tools from AZ or Advanced since it's all refunded when you return it. Most machine shops like napa are going to charge a $40 minimum to press something.

    Okay I have a 2005 Ford focus, rebuilt title, who knows how many miles... It's a winter car that I drive here in Michigan and in the summer I have a FRS.
    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!
