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!

    • Hi Chris. Thanks for the video, I always enjoying watching them. Youre very clear and show how the common man/woman can fix their car. As I was watching I saw the part where you tried to crimp the top and bottom of that ring and you said you couldn't get to it properly. I have an idea. You know you get them workbench clamps with a wooden handle? Couldn't you use that with a flat head bit? Put that above the place you need to dent it and then clamp the dent in? Take care mate.

  • IMPORTANT INFO Each Bearing has one side that's magnetic. be sure to install Bearings with the magnetic side in towards the car. the magnetic ring is part of the speed sensor system in your car. if not installed improperly, (that is with the magnetic ring facing outward) the ABS won't work. That is for the front wheels. the rear bearing comes as a complete assembly and the bearing is already properly installed. If your rear bearing is not part of an assembly, be sure they have also been installed property as well.

  • While these videos are great for step by step educational/teaching, DIY, I do not believe one bit that this job is “easy”. These videos are cut/edited, and you never see the hard parts. Don’t try to tear apart your car cause Chris fix makes it look “easy”. There’s a lot of great actors out there just saying. Ask any mechanic. Get it done professionally with warrantied work and peace at mind. Not in your driveway, with LTworlds.

  • Just wanna say, DON'T use an impact on a tool like this. They're typically just cast aluminum, and an impact will DESTROY the threads on them. I learned this the hard way a few years ago when I rented a spring compressor and used an impact on it, and it trashed the threads and I ended up having to pay to replace it. ALWAYS just use a ratchet on it

  • Awesome video, love the channel! I noticed, you correctly pressed the bearing in the bore at 5:45. Then at 7:41, you are not supporting the inner race when pressing the shaft into the bearing. Bearing in bore, support outer race, shaft in bearing, support inner race. Thanks for your time.

  • Hey Chris, I usually don't leave comments BUT when I witness something that is so outstanding I feel obligated. I have seen hundreds of Utube videos and yours is very good! You emphasize the right words at the right moments. You speak at the right volume with perfect clarity. You have sped up the video when needed not to waste our time when watching (thank you). I got my oldest son to watch because we want to fix the worn-out front end on his 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 300k miles. Your video kept his attention, which is a major feat, but he said "I like how Chris broke it up into two videos because most people video both the teardown and the reinstallment in one video and that is too much to take in one sitting". I could go on... and I want to end by saying: the excellence of your video really hit me after "I slept on it" (so to say) because it was last night that I saw it for the first time. I wanted my son to see your video. This comment comes after the second viewing. Job well done... A+ '
