How to Install a COMPLETELY New Front Suspension in your Car or Truck

Datum objavljivanja: 20. Tra 2019.
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!

    • @Freedom Garage Yes i would love to see the del sol turbo kit video!

  • can't remember if i already watched this or not.

  • Chris is the best he’s making everything looks so easy, real professional

  • Dude, whatever you're making off your channel, it's not enough. In case you don't hear this enough, thanks for all the great vids. Cheers.

  • This men is like an university.

  • did he ever put the turbo in?

  • ChrisFix, Salute you. I think it will be easy for you to build a 4WD GoKart buggy and show us the parts needed, how they work, and instructions just like most of your blog.

  • What about the stabilizer bar links? :)

  • Great video Chris! Now it's time to replace my 2005 Toyota Camry XLE suspension system! She has 260K miles; bought it brand new with 5 miles, 2005. So pumped!!

  • me,waiting 2 years for the video where you instal turbo ;)

  • Always great job!!!!. Si yo tubiera un mecanico asi en Republica Dominicana que feliz yo fuera.

  • You explain so well that you should get a job teaching young mechanics at dealerships.

  • Damn it's been a few years since i did it but MY car sure didn't drive like a brand new car after i installed all new suspension, and brake parts And i upgraded EVERYTHING man I remember i was super excited to do it too, but then was pretty surprised, and bummed out after i drove it with all the new stuff I mean i think i spent like around 4k for all the new parts, and it didn't even really make that much difference to how it handled I was almost expecting like a life changing feeling after spending all that money lol Idk maybe because it was a huge V8 sedan

  • How's the paint job holding up? I know you've covered it here and there but an in-depth video on wheel well and under carriage de-rusting and painting would be pretty sweet.

  • Hey Chris I was considering changing my entire suspension and getting everything from A1 Auto Parts. I wanted to get your opinion on whether their parts are worth getting or not. Thanks 🙏🏽

  • Siuch a great production...Takes the time to block sunlight with cardboard so u can actually see what’s going on.

  • Great vid! What was the cost of all new parts?

  • Why don’t you try 3D Printing a Dust Shield?

  • Where is the turbo build 🤨

  • Quick question why need to tight the that’s so nut with the tire dropped on the car on the ground and take it off and nailing the small thin to locked it

  • Good video, clear explanation every step of the way, thank you

  • The accidental tune indisputably support because japanese bareilly drip by a guiltless mitten. needless, harmonious pantry

  • Praise the Lord people he died for us so whoever believeth in him shall not perish but have eternal life ..

  • Is it possible to have pregreased tie rods and upper ball joints??

  • Where did you go to mechanic school

  • What’s the exact name of this car, I love it! Great video! Keep it up 👍🏻

  • Where did you order your delsol parts from ?

  • The wear indicator on the pad to the inside of the caliper. Thanks I didn't know that I've been putting it on the outside. And I'm talkin over 50 years.😳

  • I really would love you to fix my ride Chris... I trust your videos more than my service centres...Lots of love and respect from Ghana 🇬🇭....

  • That moment when you use medium strength thread locker and it smells bad

  • I wish I had a driveway and decent weather where I can work on my cars like Chris does.

  • Praise the lord people he died for us so whoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting Life

  • My Man! Please put that turbo in the Del Sol! Pretty pleasee ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

  • I love how chrisfix shows you its not impossible to do it yourself. Honestly the only guy I trust on YT.

  • Chris your vids are sickly good 👍

  • That is very helpful Bro.

  • Never thought I'd hear you say something wrong. You said "now we're going to compress that snap ring." You're not compressing it, you're stretching it. :)

  • Do the complete rear on the del sol. I need to do all my suspension

  • U forgot to put thread locker @12:8

  • U forgot to put thread locker @12:8

  • are we not gonna talk about the screws for the brake rotors?

  • i wish i had all these tools :(

  • The ill birthday climatologically belong because sailboat etiologically manage in a harmonious temple. eager, abaft dungeon

  • 21:38 why did his voice sound like that! haha

  • Compressing a 6 hour job in less than 30 minutes, epic job.

    • Took well over a hundred hours but the result was worth it!

  • Does any body no anything about ford explore 2004 AWD 4.6 when turning left or right it skip and jumps does anyone now what it is or the person make this video do you no

    • It could either be normal if you have larger tires or either you are out of alignment or your cv joint is broken

  • Hey Chris, I love your videos. Could you tell me please what kind of gloves do you use? I use nitrile gloves but they tear away all the time.

  • The faded year physically scratch because curtain successively unpack regarding a soft flag. automatic, laughable brazil

  • Stil waiting for the sol to get boosted :(

  • Don't forget to pump the brake pedal before driving off...

  • "So you don't have to go in dry" "Where the bushing rubs the end" Now i know ChrisFix has some love for cars.😋

  • Thank you I am a senior female and I am learning a lot so mechanics dont tell me no stories. I appreciate.

  • The best channel ever

  • Awesome video Chris, you explained everything so well and in detail.

  • When I want to buy a used car I'll make sure its one of Chrisfix's cars, so I have good resouce for fixing it, although I wish if you buy a subaru!

  • EXCELLENT instructions!

  • I was really hoping to see a truck suspension because of the torsion bars.

    • Everything is the same except with torsion bars need to be replaced. You support the lower control arm with a jack and slowly lower it to "unwind" the torsion bar.

  • I am a mechanic in Brazil, and your videos are very informative and help me to be as professional as possible. Awesome job Chrisfix, keep going!

  • It's Turbo time after 2 years, I am excited

  • I year later still waiting on the turbo install video.

  • I got to ask. What in the world did all that cost. Easily 1k right?

  • I've replaced so many ball joints I just purchased the ball joint press for $ 99. Glad to see you used thread locker & a torque wrench.👍

  • That was awesome

  • Still waiting on that turbo kit

  • Good👍👌

  • Great work Chris ! What an amazing video step by step on how to do this , makes a lot of people starting out more confident in doing this on there own now . You’ve mentioned all the little details that can eventually lead to major issues down the line if not done properly. And just the enthusiasm in your tone on what you do just makes your videos much more interesting for the viewers . Literally spent my whole 26 minutes amazed 👍🏻 great job !

  • Been watching you for a while but now I can use this video to good use on my 92 Corolla I just bought with 200k miles as well, Thanks ChrisFix🙏🏽

  • 4:07 doesn't seem sped up and you use impact driver as the thread rotation seem constant.

  • Watching your videos makes me want to buy a junket car and refurbish it and I’ve never even changed my own oil.

  • when is the video released where you install a turbo from ebay?

    • @ChrisFix oh wow what a timing i just rewatched that video and you just replied. I can’t wait for that video

    • Check my story!

  • i always thought chris was a asian dude

  • Love your videos! Keep up the good work!

  • I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

  • 15:06 never go in dry 😖🌵

  • its really cool that although stuff like this looks hard theres actually very little to do/ mess up

  • When are you going to turbo upgrade your honda???,coz I'm waiting for you to do that!!!

    • @ChrisFix sure bro!! I'm waiting for u to rock !!!! Love from India ❤️💯

    • I'll be able to do that once the dynos and tuners can open up again! The virus unfortunately changed around a lot of plans around with regards to turbo/supercharging and a lot of other videos, but I have received some good news about when I'll be able to get that done! Stay tuned!

  • Dude your awesome. I really mean that. Exceptional!!!

    • Im serious. I live on an island in southeast alaska. 14 miles of road. I can learn the very best method on my ipad on how to do things Confidently

    • Thanks!

  • 3:38 hentai?

  • is it weird that i am doing a full ChrisFix marathon watching all of his how to videos?

  • The freezing cook premenstrually attract because fuel quantitatively help including a moaning leek. aloof, capricious icicle

  • Hey I have a question. Where can you get a 5 lug hub. Been looking for one can’t find one and saw that you have one here in the video. Also loved the video!

  • My god 😂 that's hard

    • It's actually pretty simple once you start to do it!

  • Never go in dry lads!

  • What’s the part number for the 5 lug hubs?

  • What about sway bars and sway bar links?

    • @ChrisFix perfect. Thank you 👨🏻‍🍳

    • Have a seperate video on that here:

  • One of the most therapeutic things I have seen ever.

  • Very good job

  • dang look at the body roll

  • My favorite part was when he said he couldn't put the ball joint and wheel bearing in the freezer because, "He'd get in trouble" :-)

  • 2021 still here. Great video. My inspiration!

  • Who's watching this video in 2021

  • Soooo, when are you gonna upload of the turbo install?? Been waiting for almost a year or so. It's already 2021 Chrriissss. We want that STUTUTUTUTUUU

  • When installing the hub, shouldnt the press adapter plate touch the inside bearing race?

  • I’ve see that you fill the joint? With “grease gun”? It seems like it filled tho where i send my car to a workshop to install they are flat is that okay?

  • Is it really okay to switch 4 lug wheel hub to 5 lug? Is there anything else that i need to replace other than the hub if i were to change it? Cause I always wanted to run a 5 bolt wheel thanks!

  • This guy makes it look like he’s building a lego

  • Wow, man.

  • Big work. Great

  • Did he ever drop that turbo video? Can’t find it..

  • Who else thinks he should do a wrc or wrx build?? Like a 207 or Yaris build
