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 FRvid that the video was posted? Also when you watched the video, was there a screen that said "this video was flagged by the FRvid 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:

Chris, would this tutorial still be relatively the same if my car is all wheel steering and all wheel drive? Or would there be too many differences
ChrisFix Il y a 3 heures
Basically the same. Actually since it’s all wheel drive and all wheel steering, the rear will be just like the front too!

Instead of going through all that crap, why not just buy a new car? Those old cars aren't worth anything no matter how much money you put into it, you will never get what you put into it.
ChrisFix Il y a 11 heures
I have less than $1k into the car including the price and it’s worth $1500. Plus they don’t make cars like this anymore and it’s a good vehicle to mess around with.

Can you give an estimate at how much it costs to replace the entire suspension with quality parts?

You need to look it up for your specific car. It varies drastically

Another reason why those "philips" head screw striped may be due to the fact that they are JIS standard screw head. Similar in design to the common philips head but it inherently is less likely to round off like normal philips does if you use the right JIS screws. Little myth is that all "philips" head screw you see in cars are actually JIS screws. This will save you a lot of headache especially when such screws are used to hold the brake rotors in place.

The tire wear isn’t camber wear it’s toe wear. Camber would damage all the tire not just the one side unless your running +18 for that damage. Good video by the way!

You guys open the bearing seal, the nylon seal, will find that, grease is so little, I would rub in real bearing grease, then close with nylon seal. I saw many cases like that.

Hi Chris. What do you think is the problem in my front suspension when I hear a sort of dribbling sound when passing by uneven road? Sound is not that audible on potholes.

They have a tie rod end remover that makes it much easier to remove the inner tie rod. I would suggest this method over the way ChrisFix does it.

Here’s a freebie. Easiest way to loosen the axle nut is to put your socket and breaker bar on before removing the tires and put your car in drive or reverse and only move the car about an inch or two. Way easier on your back.
