In a previous video https://youtu.be/FCy-YcZ2Xs4 we had a look at a rusty crusty Dodge Charger and tried to determine if we could replace the axles in this car with out to many challenges in the way. Well, the best way to see what's gonna happen is to get started. -Enjoy!

    That lower ball joint will fail and crash her car.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Muff says:

    I admire your tenacity. As regards all the people that you mentioned about charging double et cetera it’s because you have a decent human being and not a cowboy as we would say in the UK that you are just a good man. By the way looking at the general state of that car I don’t think it would pass what we call in the UK and MOT in other words it would be scrap because of the rot! Great videos and please I’ve you with your great videos 👍👍👍

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Painter says:

    I'm glad to be in the south I do get a truck from time to time from new York or Maine and the rust is a beast but to live there and handle the rust everyday more power to you I hope your pay rate compensates for the rust factor

    Rust never sleeps. If my new challenger ever gets to looking like that I’ll shoot myself.

    You might have had the Vice grips on backwards. They weren’t grabbing very good.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clifford Streck says:

    I'm not sure how some people sleep at night in your case that certainly is not a problem because of your willingness to help and try to do right by people. God this world needs more people like you…

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Bos says:

    I admire your honesty as to how you handled this situation. People who tell you to gouge her are the reason people are so afraid of dishonest mechanical shops. Would i work on it? No. Clearly being the chicken that I am, I would run in the other direction. You are my hero for tackling it for this lady. Nice job.

    So why aren’t the speed sensors like in the transmission, where it is nice and dry and lubed? Instead of in the worst possible location.

    You know, this car isn't as bad as some I have seen you do. Didn't really have to use to much of big nasty

    Dodge: "Let's sell cars in New York" engineers: "but they're not designed for that environment!" Dodge: "exactly!"

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Buscio says:

    Nice job

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Mitchell says:

    Over engineering pos

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bert from NZ says:

    Man if we had that much rust here in NZ it wouldnt be allowed on the road, we have our annual inspections fail if our windscreen washer bottle is empty- that true!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don ——. says:

    You should try an inductive heater (mini-ductor) for situations like this, safer and less destructive than a torch. (No affiliation)

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dean Murphy says:

    Oh we do love the flame.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark H says:

    the shop would grind to a halt if you ran out of oxygen or acetylene!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivor Gotten says:

    If this was my car, I would feel obliged to replace everything on the suspension and underbody, and then smother everything in some heavy-sh*t grease. But it's not mine, so great job in saving this lady some money. Just expect it back with the other side the same way in 6 months, and the exhaust falls off.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N. B. P. Davenport says:

    And you wonder why mechanics are so busy

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dean Sapp says:

    Mother nature collects back it's own. Eric O with that air hammer sure looks like he is mining that ore!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A L Reed says:

    I cant believe you got those axle nuts off without the "liquid wrench".

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Evan93 says:

    I'm surprised you didn't just show her how rough and corroded the underside was. Then maybe she would have declined all the work and just got a new car lol…..

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SeagIe says:

    You forgot to splease the gleans! Greasy Spleen! It's Guden practice!

    I wish everyone was like you.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Robertson says:

    What if the Snap On guy sees all the Harbor Freight tools?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Bruneau says:

    No hate here. I respect a mechanic who will do what was asked rather than refuse to try to force more work. Thanks

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Isaiah Horton says:

    Question purely out of curiosity. When you are putting the suspension nuts/bolts and the CV shaft back together you didn’t use anti seize on the threads or splines. Is there a reason you don’t? I live on the west coast and particularly with suspension parts I always assemble with anti seize knowing that I may be the next guy taking it apart. Just wondering if there is a particular reason you don’t or if it’s just personal preference. Love your channel. I enjoy seeing some of the creative ways you have to get things done working on east coast rust factories.
