    What brand CV axles did you install? Curious with your experience on these GM trucks what brand CV axles you’d recommend. Cardone? Moog? Other? New or reman? Thanks! 👍

    Instead of taking the torque rod bolt out. Take the bottom shock bottom out mo e the shock and it will come out.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Old Dog says:

    Great video.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. Hoonigan says:

    If my inner front half cv joint fell out due to every bolt falling out from shop not torquing them, can I leave it hanging but tie it up supporting its weight so I can drive it half mile home to safety? Or will that ruin stuff further?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hunter Todd says:

    Ever tried just some back and fourth action with the air gun first ? Many times I can get the nut all the way off with minimal effort.

    Also if you center it the flange and finger snug one bolt the rest go in easy. I usually rotate it like you do start the one just opposite and a dap of blue loctite on the rest.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Moncivais says:

    What kind of sound does this make when the part goes bad?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Upnorth Vlogs says:

    I learned something!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Harding says:

    Instead of struggling with that sway bar mount he should have just dropped the bottom of that shock absorber

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars skypetty45 says:

    What size of socket did you use on the axle nut ?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jan Sonan says:

    Thank you for the video! I love your channel, helps me everything I have to dig into my truck! I have to do both cv axels, sway bar links and bushings, brakes and an oil change. Thanks again for the helpful videos!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frances Prentiss says:

    Is it possible or how hard would it be to change one without any air tools?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Just The Hound says:

    Awesome. Thanks for taking the time

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MacGyver 2 says:

    Good tutorial. Thanks

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Boe Bradley says:

    Add the sizes of each tool needed would be very helpful. Yes they all aren't the same but somewhere even close would still help.

    Thank you for sharing that I now have a few more garage words I can use when the grandkids are around LOL.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Huddleston says:

    Once again you do the best job of showing how to replace something. It is nice to see and hear all the real world experiences you have. Your my favorite auto repair guy!!! Keep up the great videos.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars deapozol says:

    I think you do very good and work and you are very detailed oriented for example, the way you cleaned up the flange and added some spray for ease of installation and maybe rust minimization. I wonder if other shops are that detail oriented and actually do a good job especially after charging what they charge some of them. Anyway, great work always.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Capizzi says:

    Excellent….!!!! I think that says it all

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Crypto Currency says:

    Corrosion like a mofo

    Thanks for the video

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Williams says:

    A couple ugga duggas on torque setting #3. Advice taken

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brent Smith says:

    what brand of cv shafts are best value for the price? i checked rock auto they had a big selection. all are under 100 bucks except for ac delco they were over 400 . other options are CARDONE, surtrack and GSP. CARDONE has heavy duty option. i hear you get what you pay for. but can buy 5 for what 1 ac delco cost. i dont really do off roading much unless i have to. and it only snows here 3 or 4 times a year. they dont seem to difficult to change but i dont want to change em all the time for the fun of it .

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hawkens hazelton says:

    Is this the same for a 1994 gmc c1500 suburban

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerald Bresett says:

    Good video thanks

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Hall says:

    About a year and a half ago i had to do this on my father in laws 96 gmc and this is the video i watched before i did it. Thanks for all the tips

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam J says:

    Looks so simple compared to other fixes. What do you think a fair mechanic would charge to do both sides? I got quoted $600 and it seems way high. Thanks.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Metal Molder says:

    I have to do this so thankfully you show something thats like an everyday driver in the rustbelt cuz other channels show a truck with no rust. I have hand tools so this should be fun!
