    Wow I am a mechanic here in pg co md and have never seen that wonderful tool for the lower control arm any info would be appreciated thank you

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    If the balljoint is toast. Chances are the control arm will be also. Then you get a new control arm with the balljoint attached.

    The ac condenser and atf cooler will not share the same cooler. They may have a similar fluid, but pressures are not the same.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Derrick Boyd says:

    Good old Chrysler ball joints 😬😬

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Sallander says:

    Man the Subaru BJ is 100% worst than this.. I hate doing BJ.

    Back in the 90s while being a GM tech, Ball joints ONLY lasted 3 to 400 thousand miles. Chinese pot metal these days

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dickerson says:

    I had a p/s hose that had a small hairline cut ✂️. It only leaked when the wheels were turned to the right.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dickerson says:

    A little white Lithium Grease, or anti-sieze will make installation a whole lot easier 🤔

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John E. Carr says:

    As usual, "BIG NASTY"

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zazzi Vlogs says:

    Love your videos n the care you provide for your customer. Hard to find a mechanic that cares for his customers. I learn so much from your videos n apply the technique u you point out! Keep up the great work! Writing all the way from Alberta Canada.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hawk 1966 says:

    You know, most shops would have said to the customer "you look to have a tranny fluid leak. Do you want us to look into it?" Not Eric, he hunts down the leak and does the fix because it's the right thing to do. I miss having a good mechanic who cares more about the customer than the money.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eero Laukkanen says:

    Good job, so easy to do, with power tools…., BUT, you did not put that locking clip back??, and you did not torque that ball joint nut??? Actually put it very light in, then pin it??? Just wondering…..;o)

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Lessard says:

    I take a tie rod socket, put the old nut then I zip it in. Thats how i do it.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Threm says:

    Dude you're screwed up press it back out some you went too far that clip should be flushed not way up

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Threm says:

    Put it in the freezer then press it

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Threm says:

    No safety glasses again damn

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hector Chavez Avila says:

    Feliz navida

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J.C. Paul says:

    200 ball joints. Good God.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FliesLikeABrick says:

    Impressive camera work when you zoom through the mesh and get the camera to focus on the transmission cooler fitting

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Bell says:

    Once we know it had been wrecked all bets off, can't blame Chrysler

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars terry sugg says:

    Didn't see the c clip, did you put it on?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WATCHMEN 777 says:

    Chrysler products are built to fail much like many Ford parts are built to fail this is why I've driven GM Automobiles and trucks for the last 40 years interchangeability of parts more affordable replacement parts and interchangeability speak for yourself

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Dalton says:

    Where did you get big nasty from? Need info on big nasty

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Camp Freedom VT says:

    Another awesome video made. Doing a 07 Sebring and it has the same set up. I can't believe you don't wear safety glasses or a face shield in most of your videos. Years ago i was air chiselling something and a very small piece of metal came off the chisel and struck me in the face. It bleed a lot,but one minute later it felt like someone punched me in the face. I had safety glasses on,but now i use a full face shield whenever i use the air chisel now. Safety first,not last. 🙂

    Sir you go above and Beyond Your call of Duty which is Rare Now A Days Dont ever Change Stay Thirsty My Friend 313 Until I D-I-E

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Erik says:

    I like how in this video the installment of the snap ring was omitted lol….. I would have loved to see how he put that snap ring on with the steering knuckle still on the car…. i had to cut the handles in half of my snap ring pliers with the steering knuckle off the car to install the snap ring. With the cv axle in the way I under stand why he conveniently didn't include that part of the job. Maybe a spritz of kroil we would help lol

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Bonham says:

    I’ve been trying to figure out the true identity of “big nasty” but I have to ask. Make and model please, I need to get me one. Is that the 3/8 or 1/2 Nano that drove that ball joint in 3/4 of the way? You saved customer a transmission. Good job!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garrett Arney says:

    Does anyone know if you can buy that red tool of his for the lower control arms?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vernon Rice says:

    There's a girl in my hood named big nasty

    Bad ball joints in three years and leaking trans fluid. What junk.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kyle smith says:

    Should have thrown those babys in the freezer for an hour…

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Bell says:

    The wife's 04 grand caravan has 253K on it and the ball joints are fine. Looks quality has really suffered that past few years. But it what year did it change?

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Ortiz says:

    Big nasty making miracles once again.

    I got a 2012 and I only replaced a wheel speed sensor. I've had it for over a year. Love the car.
