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

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!

  • Everyone start watching more ads and more thumbs up for Mr. Fix’s videos. (No skipping ads) We all want to see him graduate into a nice backyard barn with lift, for Mr. Fix’s channel to stay on top, and turn out more great videos and more often. (Great channel - been watching your channel grow for years, hence my comment)
