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

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!

    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
