How to Replace Control Arms and Bushings to Fix a Bouncy Suspension

  • Published on: 29 June 2020
  • 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. Then we take the DriftStang to the track and test her out!

    I don't have a mustang. I don't plan on buying one. I have no interest in drifting either. In fact, I am currently restoring a '70 VW Beetle. I am currently working on the rear of the frame (transmission, trailing arms, bushings, brakes, bearings etc.) Still, I watched this video and picked out some good general information about the importance of installing new bushings and installing them correctly. Thanks Chris.

    Hey chris as always I really appreciate your videos and keep it up. Oh yes I'm wondering if you can do an video on the process on changing gearbox. Meaning changing from automatic transmission to an manual /stick shift transmission. I hear it can be very hard process and just wondering again how would you go about it.

    How would you know it the part would fit in the car, and how you know it won’t be off or not the same size
