    Fwiw not possible without air tools….I tried cause I didn't feel like going to my shop where the compressor etc were.. no luck with the front bolt, had toget my impact involved. North Eastern car….maybe a southern car would be easier.

    Great vid again Mr O.
    Torque install procedures from 2007 Factory Service Manual: Ball joint pinch bolt 53 +/- 7 ft-lbs.
    "The part indicated by **indicates parts which should be temporarily tightened, and then fully tightened with the vehicle standing on the ground and the curb weight condition. **Control arm front and rear mount bolts/nuts 82 +/- 7 ft-lbs".
    Stay gold.

    What are the specs on the bolts and thanks for the video my outlander does the same thing

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brianb19 says:

    Would it be a bad idea to spray all the joints with a penetrating spray to help loosen it all?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B Will says:

    Does the bolts need torgued back up with the car loaded?

    Very easy, thanks. My next job

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Crawford II says:

    Great Job I hope all the repairs on this 03 are as easy as you just made that look. Well, here goes..

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hoffmann says:

    Great video, seems to be easier on this 2nd gen Outlander than on my first gen because on the first gen with the 2.4 engine you can't take the bolt in the front out due to the oilfilter being in the way, so whenever you have to change the passenger side lower control arm you will also need to do an oilservice as you will have to remove the oilfilter to get the damn bolt out. The only other way would be to slightly drop the whole front subframe to get that bolt out.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Taylor says:

    Hello there SMC!! Been watching your vids for years! Your A/C videos really helped me alot, thank you! Came across a 2016 Outlander Sport with a supposed "trailer arm" issue that requires it to be replaced. I've started researching this model and it's suspension is different than I'm used to. Do you have any experience with replacing a "trailer arm"? If so, know where I can find this part other than the dealer? Doubt it, but thought I'd ask you.

    Thanks for the tips its gonna be easy ihope my wife has a Outlander needs control arms.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Morrow says:

    The video was great. I have a 2009 Outlander. And I have a few questions for you.
    Can this be done with a set of jacks stands? And do you think that you need to change both left and right side lower, also the tie rods and upper ball joint. I’m asking to avoid having to have multiple front end alligments I was always told that you need an alignment when you change any ball joints.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Relaxing Mother Nature says:

    nice video but please tell also the torque for each bolt so it can be easy for us.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars adam ad says:

    I bought moog control arms for my 09 lancer, after 10k they started make clunking noise
    It was the ball joint that goes to the knuckle
    Well I learned my lesson once again if you are cheap sucker you’ll pay twice
    Buy OEM save money and time

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars usama says:

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Rodbend says:

    are you able to replace JUST the lower ball joint on the 06 outlander or do you have to replace the entire arm

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nathan Lester says:

    You sound like a fckn robot

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marc Smith says:

    I am in the middle of replacing that lower control arm on an 04 Outlander and that horizontal front bolt is seized to the sleeve. I am turning breaker bars and it moves the entire control arm. I can't see a way to cut it out. It is a nightmare.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BreadAndGatorade says:

    I noticed you use a lot of moog stuff in your repairs. Is it because of availability or is it good? I have to do a lot of suspension work on my 03 accord. Going for KYB quick struts, skunk2 upper control arm for camber adjustment mine is out of spec (+1.7 camber), and moog lower ball joint? Also considering moog adjustable rear upper control arm to fix positive rear camber as well.
