    Warning: Silicone inhalation may be present in this recording, some violent chevy truck abuse may disturb some viewers!


    The ball joints mount in the upper control arm on the bottom side. Hence your clearance issues.


    Eric your working too hard ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘

    The steering was on the correct way @38:55 but the sway bar is upside down.

    To anyone who wants to know how to easily slip control arms in… just spead the pockets open. How you ask… with a piece of threaded rod, two nuts, and a few washers. To see what I'm talking about… Google image search ("threaded spreader") or ("control arm bracket spreader").

    Using wire on the insulator is also a good idea!!

    Where is the anti seize? In the tie rod ends? Remember how hard it was to remove the old ones?

    Hahaha. The sway bar flip install.


    I think the aftermarket control arm was upside down and that would make the ball joint too high up. I could be wrong

    great job

    guido smith

    I felt your frustration Eric when all else fails get a bigger hammer.were Orem bushes not available that would have been the better option cheers.

    Hey Eric I have done these before and had noticed that the calipers for the 2500 series fit perfectly and work better because of the bigger size of the Piston in the calipers so I would suggest you to try them and see if you notice a difference between the two

    One thing about it, after a day like that in the shop, you sleep well that night.


    "sometimes you dont have to screw them all the way in"… well if they're cross-threaded… LOL

    @11:20 It's Spring isolator, not insulator! God DAMNIT! Thumbs down the vid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alex Deaver

    I feel this episode 100%. Even on my rust free mustang I hit the moments of let it drop and take a minute before you burn the car to the ground or something less crazy.

    Hi Eric the car Guy I have a question what purpose of a ground wire connected to the body connected to the engine block used for?


    Was it just me, or did Eric install the sway bar backwards?

    Man, I was sweating when Eric compressed that second grenade…
