Learn how to replace control arms and bushings to fix a car with a bouncy suspension. I show you how to figure out what is causing the bounce (shocks or bushings) and then I show you how to replace the upper and lower trailing arms and install new poly bushings.

  • 1:24 Am I the only who notices a big V8 in the garage, ready to be put in?

  • Hey Chris Fix! Guys here

  • Did he say Supercharger? 😳😁💪🏻

  • And, "the bounce has gone from his bungee." (from Wallace and Gromit)

  • Now all the mustang drivers are gonna use this excuse😄hahaha

  • Not sure if you have addressed this but you might want to double check the model number on the Pittsburgh jack stands you have. They had a recall. Just want to make sure you don't get crushed!

  • When you showed yourself on the highway it looked like you were on the Driscoll bridge on the Parkway

  • I use to make my neighbors trip cause I took the rear shocks off this old impala I had🤣when it was windy it use to bounce on it's own 🤣

  • Driftstang sounds awesome 😔👌👌

  • please do the stang justice and supercharge it or just keep it N/A

  • Stock market needs new shock absorbers... or just shocks.

  • Very good video! I might have to upgrade my wife's '98 GT convertible suspension now. You probably know this trick, but on those upper axle control bushings, you can use a drill with bit to drill into the rubber where it meets the metal sleeve, then let the bit walk on its own around the perimeter of the rubber. It will literally walk the bushing out in a few rotations around the rubber. The bit may scratch the sleeve a little inside, but a quick pass with a flap wheel inside the sleeve will polish it and also take out any remaining rubber. That's a trick that I learned a while back, and it works well!

  • Every new chrisfix video that there is, his voice gets pitched higher lol

  • How do you know all of that

  • Project car progress 👀

  • its funny how i never watch these videos to fix something on my car but just because i find it untertaining

  • Excellent!!

  • What happend to the v 6 mustang with the exaust problem

  • Do you like yodas?

  • How to engine swap video next? Lol that would be helpful

  • if you look at 17:52, you can see that his rim is damaged. you can see that his rim is stright and not round. that could also cause jumping and it could wear out the bushings.

  • I wish I could be like Chris, knowing all the stuff about his vehicles and replacing by himself! 😍😍

  • 5:36 yeeet!

  • Great video I learned a lot


  • 18:00 your mag has a dent !

  • Why haven’t you changed your steering wheel on the drift stang ?

  • I would like to give this man a big thank you for all his hard work and sharing his knowledge. Thank you so much ChrisFix, you're very helpful and greatly appreciated.

  • did i just hear the stang's getting a super whirly bro at the end?

  • New mods on the del sol???

  • Wears a racing helmet while driving on public road... I'm gonna start doing that when I commute for work, LA traffic is dangerous.

  • Supercharger? Can’t wait for that video!! 😁

  • I just rebuilt my clutch packs in my rear end from one of your more recent videos, I think you should upload a video after each video showing all the "bloopers" or swearing, knuckle busting, and yelling because you make this stuff look too easy sometimes, its discouraging having issues when you see it looked so easy for Chris!! haha (Kidding of course, I know your channel is PG, but you truly do make this look so easy)
