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

  • Hey Chris I replaced ball joints, and all other fittings connected. My question after I pressed the ball joint in and started tightening the nut the ball joint bolt started turning. The nut ain't even close to being tight. Any ideas what I should do?

  • Hey, ChrisFix I had a question about how you sell these cars do you register them and pay all the fees and put the title under your name then sell it or do you do it the "floating title" method way? Because I want to start flipping cars but I'm scared that I might lose money so asking how you do it and have done research on it but they are kind of confusing...

  • Hi Chris Fix, I watch just about every video you make and for sure I learn a lot. I can't relate to some of them because I own a 96' Nissan Maxima. It's in good shape for it's age> I got this car with127,444 mile on it,which is not much for 24 years. I had to replace just about every sensor on it,muffler front to back,shocks and strut,brakes and rotors,brake line,one caliber,tires all around,one coil and a tie rod.The steering wheel is slightly more to the left and not at center,This car wants to drift slowly towards the right. I had an alignment done to it and feel it wasn't done properly,am I right?

I enjoy your videos long time, What do you do when you’re on a budget what do you suggest replacing first if you can’t afford to buy all those parts at once Do you like a list like I would start with the sharks or I would start with the spindles or I would start with the ball joint what would you start with first second third for one thanks man

  • Heeeey Chris...I know you said Mevotech sent the majority of the parts and I can find them easy enough online, but I'm curious as to what brand axle(s) you used. The Sol community hates most aftermarket axles, and the acceptable/perfered consensus seems to be Insane Axles @$400 a pair, or Raxles @$500 a pair with oem trade in. 😱 Im not building my Sol to be fast, just restoring for nostalgic purposes. What are your thoughts and recommendations? Thanks in advance, appreciate you bro!
