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!

  • Chris. How do i install a turbo?

  • Are you still drifting

  • I have a question for you it don’t no how to get ahold of you

  • Please make face review

  • Chris, I have a challenge/video idea for you. Buy a (classic?) car frame, and completely build the entire car until it's fully restored. Would be interesting to see how you would do things, and people could learn a ton. Good idea or bad?

  • Hey @chrisfix my '04 Ford Expedition has extremely squeaky front suspension, is it a similar process as the rear? I really dont want a shop to tell me to replace 100 things like hubs if i can just do suspension work myself. Thanks man, good stuff!

  • Mustang: hey don't be too harsh on fixing me ChrisFix: don't worry im just gonna lightly tap it in Mustang: phew ChrisFix: grabs sledge hammer Mustang: da heck?

  • Hey Chris, really enjoy the videos. Ever thought about doing one on dash cameras? Maybe researching a good one, a decent one, and an el cheapo, the maybe showing how to install one? Just a thought... Thanks!

  • Hey Chris hope you dont mind me asking how much Cars do you have?

  • I am willing to bet that Chrisfix can cure the coronavirus with simple hand tools and soapy wooder :D

  • Hello Chris I just wanted to say I enjoy your videos and I’m having trouble with my 2007 ford ranger it’s a 4 banger 2.3 I believe and every time I put it in drive it won’t be in gear and when I put in low gear it finally catches and I’ll be able to put it in drive but when I reach a certain speed it won’t catch and start revving and I’ll just lose speed what would be the problem

    • Thanks a lot! Check the level and condition of your transmission fluid and see where it is at. Unfortunately you might have a bad transmission that needs to be replaced.

  • Now As soon as you hit a pot hole it will feel like an earthquake

  • It wouldn't be a Chrisfix video without medium strength thread locker

  • Somebody in the comments: If ChrisFix doesn't pin this comment, HE DOESN'T LOVE HIS FAMILY ChrisFix: *pins* A fan who has a very good advice about cars: Am I a joke to you?

I’ve already replaced a belt and tried to tighten a pulley that seems loose but can’t identify the problem. Please help, also thank you for these videos, they’ve helped me a lot more than even most mechanics have

  • MY problem is that my car felt like this, along with the noise when going in R when my Maxima was brand new!! Of course my idiot brother took it for a quick ride and maybe he messed up the bushings or shocks, or u bar?? Is that even possible? I did take it to Nissan and they said they couldn't find any problems. They probably don't know anything or even half as much as you, Chris. ugh
