    You’re putting them up around my neighborhood too. I don’t know what they are still.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Destiny says:

    Could be a 5g tower. They make them look different depending on the area. Not sure. 5g requires many small poles because the signal gets blocked by every solid object, including trees and even rain last I heard.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lithgow Lights says:

    Son had one of the "Safety defeating devices" for the passenger seat as the seat sensor was faulty and always thought there was someone in the passenger side. That was the easiest (cheapest) fix until he sold the car

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Jackson says:

    That post is the latest defence tech, all part of the earth protection grid, surface to air pole mounted laser cannons, we are getting ready for interstellar attack , you will see these popping up everywhere! 🤪😎

    Reee the intro is loud and annoying.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D B says:

    1. I miss dooo dee doo. 2. Reee the intro is loud and annoying. 3. That is all

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Reardon says:

    Swap your lifts over man!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jimfromstem says:

    been watching your videos for a few days,so i need to get caught up.noticed no grease fittings on the new parts.also subscribed.your approach is like my favorite grease monkey Chickanic.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Parkinsonsjihad says:

    the pain is real….keep keeping on

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dean opper says:

    5G cell tower.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WALTER GRAVES says:

    On the Ford you definitely have to program the new EPAS unit. If the EPAS unit is still talking, you can download its programming then upload to the new unit. If it is not talking, then you must download the programming for the VIN number from Ford and upload to the new unit.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john liford says:

    I bet that shit wasn’t even leaking, the oil filter on those trucks with the 5.7, is right above the steering gear. Like exactly where he showed in the video, I’ve done plenty of oil changes on those trucks and that thing has a pep boys oil filter so I’m assuming they didn’t clean it off, F150’s are similar in design, they leak oil from the filter housing on the rack, if it’s not clean it will look like a leak.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Little says:

    do you have a transmission jack? it would of made it easier to lift steering up to the height you need easier.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Domalash says:

    I'm learning so much from every video. I didn't even know there was something other than rack and pinion steering.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pskton says:

    Love the growl with unclick,lol.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Builds A says:

    The clunk as it fell down .. I half expected you to "catch" it with your chest when it dropped all the way through (we've all been there)!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Underground Lair of the Squankum says:

    Part of me feels old, seeing that even pickup trucks have electric steering racks and aluminum upright and those are old enough to need work…. wait a goldarned minute! This thing's a 2014 and it's failing?!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Underground Lair of the Squankum says:

    That pole is mounted in commercial/light industrial areas to monitor the populace and see if anybody's saying DOO DE DOO DE DOOOOO!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Knoll says:

    Another awesome steering gear removal and installation. I have never heard of an electric steering gear without fluid.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Damien Villano says:

    I replaced a steering rack on my own car years ago. The trick I used was to measure from the outer tie rod to the other outer tie rod. The threads can be slightly different from one rack to another, especially if it uses different manufacturers inner or outer tie rods.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan S says:

    This job is really easy, wheels and rod ends don't need to come off to pull the rack out. Had to do this on my 19 classic after hitting a pothole.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E Buzek says:

    Do you get to check the fluid level on that unit?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brice Graham says:

    Lol idk why watching you drag the rack and pinion after saying "your coming with me" was so funny.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Stulop says:

    Sway bar lol, Torsion Bar.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Evan Murry says:

    …just watching this, but the dealership in Tx I work at might've sent this part to yours. I remember one getting checked out and we even noticed it came with outer tie rods 😂 crazy world if it is the same one

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Neal says:

    so you're saying the shaft is the hardest part? 🤣🤣

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave says:

    Um.. this isn't a leak. It's oil separation from the grease inside the steering gear. The correct repair here would be to wash it off. The replacement will eventually have the same external film in about a year or so. If you understood how these work, you'd know there's no "fluid" inside an electric steering gear therefore nothing to "leak". Totally unnecessary repair – as far as the leak is concerned. I'd be super suspicious of those connectors at the gear. That's probably what is causing the steering message and it will probably be back.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Andes says:

    As a long- time DIYer, do you not need to be more mindful of the new steering gear being centered before connecting to the steering shaft to ensure the clockspring is not affected?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr G says:

    A pleasure to observe a master at his craft. You made this look easy and swift… Thanks for sharing your expertise Mr. Ray!!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gunlover1955 says:

    Grandpa alignment guy here have you ever did a string alignment where you run a string from the rear tires to the front bumper and set alignment that way it is old school but it works great as long as you have not unalined the rear some way. I learned how to do string alinements on diesel trucks in 1972 and have used it on all my cars and light trucks ever since.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Michaels says:

    The tower is a Tsunami warning speaker I believe.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Nesbitt says:

    Just wanted to let you know that seat belt defeat job isn't necessary. There is a procedure that disables the warning bell without having to take it apart. So you can drive without the seatbelts and the annoying bell. Better to wear the belt I know but if you're not going to it's easier to just disable the bell.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C B says:

    Wow…Did you hear that horrendous Hemi-tick?!?! That thing probably has a half wiped cam lobe. Definitely a MDS lifter failing.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pop's Free Bird Report says:

    I fired a fairly good mechanic once for not getting the steering wheel back to center. Good job my man. You're attention to detail is what makes you top tier.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Quann says:

    I'm just saying…. There seems to be a suspicious amount of Dodge/Chrysler products in you videos….

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Carter says:

    key fob cover 15 bucks, just saying.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrStef1969 says:

    Looks like a smart control pole, welcome in the New World Order…🤔

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Captain Bluefin says:

    Could you swap lifts so that the straight in position could be used for bigger vehicles and the angle stall for smaller ones?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zzbacardizz says:

    Ram trunks let you turn off the seatbelt warning so that cheater isn't even necessary

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott says:

    Nice work Ray.
    Really nice that you don't have to mess with stuck hyd lines and slimy fluid all over.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenda Van Beek says:

    🤩🤩

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stonebull says:

    Maybe 5g tower. They are not up high necessarily like the others

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael says:

    Ray, Nice vid. Check your gmail when you get a chance.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BESTO1215 says:

    Antiseiz for mounting bolts…and dialectic grease for electric connectors…

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Dawson says:

    Words the enemy of everyone who has to use them they can drive you crazy when need the correct word.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Miles Monroe says:

    Good to see comments coming back about switching the lifts and the open door. Ffs lol

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Garrett says:

    5g cell phone mast, they are far less powerful than the 4g so need more of them.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bub Dawg's What do you think? says:

    Looks like a 5G antenna to me but it could be wrong
