Hey guys! Here is an old video I found sitting in my archives that I made a few years back when Dorman was having a video contest for $100.00! I made this video for them and they liked it. I goes to show with a little bit of editing you make the toughest job look super easy. Any one working in the rust belt knows 100% there is no way this is an easy job. However a few clicks of the mouse and a snip here and there it is a gravy job. I am in NO WAY sponsored by Dorman trust me...

    WOW! I clicked on this for tips on how to handle replacing rust belt shackles, I've done them and each time it was a pain in the ho-ha. The whole time I was watching this I was waiting for the punch line. Very well done! Oh yeah, I bet it was super easy! 🙄

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Gornstein says:

    Excellent video. Like your style. Easy to listen to. Makes things look uncomplicated. Wish you were in my area so you can do mine. I’m from the Bronx New York. Keep up the good work.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sofa King Good says:

    I since a little "ChrisFix" here..😅

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Merrowjake84 says:

    Hahah.. few minutes with a few tools… nope

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike J says:

    Hey Eric what way does the open side of the shackles point toward? Front or rear of the vehicle?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 77 Zrod says:

    Did this on my 99 ranger back in the day. Took me 6 hours in my drive way with hand tools. Took the dealer 3.5 hours to do the other side in the shop. I dont think I did too bad. Oh and I replaced the bushings after getting the seized bolt out.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thedarkphire33 says:

    Lmao this guy making it look like a friggin breeze hahaha

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Inman says:

    No lift needed , spring went right through the bed. 5 hours later, easiest job I’ve done on my truck so far! 10/10

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars the girl gang says:

    This had me cracking up 🤣🤣🤣 throughout the whole video I kept calling you a "dick" sry not sry.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maximo Bautista says:

    Thanks that was nice and easy with no problems.😊

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roberts Revival says:

    Was it regular grade 8 bolts with thread all the way or a smooth shank up towards head then thread to put nut on?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clyde Stanley says:

    I couldn’t figure this one I thought this is one of his first vids or he is just being a smart ass. You know for. POOP & LAUGHTER.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Moore says:

    Did the spring shackles about a month and a half ago. Not horrible. But took a whole day because 3 of the 4 bushing bolts were seized. Then, yesterday, I got my redemption! Did both shocks in under 20 minutes! Took me longer to go get the parts than it did replacing them.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheGabe Johnson says:

    I don’t like how you assume I don’t have a torch or grinder. Judge much?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Davis says:

    But you left a bad bushing in the leaf spring defeating the whole purpose I have a 95 Chevy K1500 and the rear end is out of alignment a fixed rear end I have to replace all bushings and shackles

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RIGHTYTIGHTY says:

    Im glad you didnt replace the bushing , im not going to either.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken C. says:

    Okay, Eric, whaddya do when the upper shackle bolts seize in the bushings?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SalandFindles says:

    Oh god, this video is cringeworthy! It's soooo not Eric at all!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Blake says:

    Hahaha, I have been following you for awhile, and to hear you say great kit, and Dorman in the same sentence is hilarious.
    Love your content.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars OldSchoolCars says:

    I am saddened to see this up there for every unsuspecting 18 year old to 20 something newbie to completely miss the syrupy sarcasm and think this is some how easy. 150 miles south of you in PA the rust belt is alive and well. at 320 K on my 04, I Ordered hangers and shackles and shocks just today and expect the whole thing will take four to five hours for this aging old fart of 66 to get them all on, laying on his back in the drive.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Wilfred Michelin says:

    I have an 08 CR 1500 up here in Canada the front connectors on my leaf springs have rusted completely can I use this kit safely or would I have any worries?? I'm trying to save money, 10K and 2 weeks in the garage is way out of my budget

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars eric vulgate says:

    this is exactly what i need to see thanks.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Michlewicz says:

    That was obnoxious .not you at all.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lyndon Chappell says:

    Sell that Dorman stuff!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Fort says:

    Lol I was thinking mmmm that's not the Eric we know now.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars flyboy 2610 says:

    Eric O. hyping Doormouse parts. Say it isn't SO, Ethel!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars eXpLiCiT xy says:

    Could you have avoided taking off the hitch if you put the bolt through the shackle before bolting the shackle onto the frame?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trailer Monkey says:

    This is awful. Like Eric from the Twilight Zone Gagage

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rich carpinello says:

    How would ther be factory torque specs when those mounts were riveted originally?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pinacho1979@gmail.com pinacho says:

    Thanks amigo I have to do this job on my 2000 Chevy

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

    I haven't laughed so hard in weeks, just looking at that rusted turd I was checking for an April 1st release date on the video.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Black3ternity says:

    Damn – is Eric on LSD or am I watching an alternate Universe from Marvel?
    Nice one Eric 😀 That put a smile on my face.

    Edit says:
    You could be such a great star on the good old Television back when the QVC and all the other teleshopping-channels were a thing. 😀

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Milan says:

    Just ordered the Dorman 722-100 hanger and shackle kit. Going on a 1991 GMC Sierra 2500K. One of the easiest and quickest jobs I've done on this truck. Dorman is the best! Will definitely be looking at Dorman products in the future. Great video. Thanks.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raptor327 says:

    Funny thing about this I just started watching your channel around 3 months ago consistently and I had a faint memory of you being in a video I watched in the past acting totally different then all of your videos I am just now watching , but I remembered looking this up this before I did it on my Silverado

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ejay says:

    Isn't it supposed to start with an overenthusiastic "Hey guys! Chrisfix, here"?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DarK Toad One says:

    Wow look at that rust, I'm glad a live in the south, I have a 2013 Sierra with no rust. Of course it does help also if you have an undercarriage cleaner which I have.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Blankenship says:

    how am i just seeing this now? This is hilarious!
