    No wonder your videos look so good

    Use a knocker instead of hammer.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Cook says:

    Ray I like watching your videos you have helped me to fix all the cars and pickup trucks that I work on. Rusty parts are not fun to work with.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leo Cline says:

    I'm glad your not going to fastnal

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerardo Perez says:

    I disagree, I'd rather have 2 sets of balls than that plastic thing.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nissan Slut says:

    I know O’reillys carries the cam adjustment bolts and the strut bolts. They’re probably only a day out

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fun Ki says:

    I have an idea for a salvage business, you take the cars from where they don't rust and the sun bakes interiors. Replace the motors/maybe/interior plastics with rust belt lower uv area cars.?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brett hayward says:

    no Anti Seize with new stuff?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HouseCallAutoRepair says:

    I'm sorry Ray… I found this so hilarious! Up North, we're used to this!
    Angle grinder, torch, Go!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mugz91 says:

    Yup. Very normal procedure for an outside kept vehicle in West Virginia. Go ahead and order every part you need to touch because you probably will not easily remove the bolts.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Alford says:

    Why not grease the upper control arm bolts for the next time repair! just saying!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 7ofmine says:

    Ray, You put one guy on an impact, the other uses a club and whack that puppy!! Good luck.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wayne mg tregear says:

    I used to be a wood chippie I would measure twice cut once and some how always managed to be between 5mm to 10mm out. So I became a Mick han ic instead, with no worries

    When I get tired of asking, I roll out my best friend the cutting torch.

    How rude was it for office jerk to just walk off while you was talking to him? Love your vid's

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Finnerty says:

    I just did a set of front struts on a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the same bolt was frozen just like yours. I was smart and took the advice of Eric O and bought the Astro 4980 also known as Big Nasty a while back. It took about 15 minutes per side. I got them out without much trouble or cursing and know they would not have come out in one piece without the tool. Basically, if the rust belt mechanic Eric O says to get yourself one of these bad boys get one because you won't regret it.

    400,000 coming soon!!!!!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Link says:

    Can't get the bolts from a Florida salvage yard?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Mack says:

    It lists the proper pronunciation on their website. It is "Ka-nip-ex"

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wowloverforlife says:

    Lots of "flavor" on that dodge
    Always good to have an extra set of balls lol 😆

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KaiWest says:

    This reminds me of removing the rear leaf springs on my 99 durango to install the lift brackets. spun my bushings and took 3 days of hammering and torching in my apartment parking lot to get them out. same story at the time, I couldn't get the proper bolts for about a month or so. I ended up throwing some bolts from the hardware store with a shim that got me by for the month or so it took to get my bolts in. never had a problem but it is highly recommended to get the proper bolts for these parts instead of something from "fastenall" Like you said….. The thing is that the proper bolts for these assemblies are much stronger than anything you'll get at the store because its solid metal where it needs to be inside the bushings instead of threads. you also have to keep in mind anything you get from the store is probably going to be threaded or partially threaded inside the bushing and on the shearlines of the assembly between the body and the arm, if there's a lot pressure on the threaded part of the bolt because of the shearline of the assembly it'll pop the bolt right in half no matter how strong it is because the shearline is getting leverage and pulls the bolt apart at the threads. dont do a botch job to someone else's cars guys, get the right parts if you're not working on your own stuff. hell even your own stuff, your broken vehicle could kill someone else on the road all because you got the wrong bolt. work smarter not harder.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Clay says:

    Never purchase a car from up North.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Bochanesky says:

    Where I am we have a nut and bolt warehouse. Grade 8 or better for steering and suspension. I like to use the stovers nice black finish. Our practice is to always use new hardware and torque to spec. I have to admit though since watching Ray I use the old voice click when I can lol.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Adams says:

    That thing isn't even rusty.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Giles says:

    Ray excellent video on the frustrations suffered on corroded fasteners,Sometimes by applying brake fluid or synethetic hydraulic oil, (Phosphate ester) corroded bolts will free them , as it normalises steel a type of galvanic reaction… also we have this lubricant in a spray can here in Australia that has lanolin in it called Lanotek . It derusts just about everything and penetrates so it doesn't rust again, i have had rusted Padlocks work again and not have to reapply again. Maybe you could find something similar with lanolin in it regards on your videos.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ny718 says:

    You need the milwaukee high torque it will break those bolts free ive done a few. Or the 1in impact

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mad max says:

    Not to cut ya down ray cause your a great mechanic, but a little heat, water, bfh and air hammer and you could easily get all those bolts out without cutting them off.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Simon Allan says:

    Very enjoyable with the great attitude and sense of humor 👏 I can really relate to those jobs that are not at all as straightforward as may first appear 🥴 thanks for sharing your experiences at work with all the tools I wish I could afford lol 😉

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DSMattitude says:

    I agree that moog is slipping. Got their mediocre line and a track bar and drag link lasted 2,000 miles.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Wilson says:

    That shifty rainman, breaking stuff to increase profits! Damn you crooked mechanics!!!!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan M says:

    Man I thought I had a tough time installing these cognito kits for my boss and his friends Chevy 3500hd. But man I feel your pain lol

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Becker says:

    you can always use an extra set of balls

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Wolf says:

    It really sucks that , this day and age scientist have not come up with a better, cheaper way to clear roads without salt. With all the money each state and insurance companies make from vehicle ownership and purchases, then the owner has to deal with rust and everything that brings with it. Somehow this does seem right.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Gieselman says:

    Pickups have a higher rear so that the bed can be loaded and the ride height is still fairly level… and the headlights won't be illuminating the moon. I know you are just installing customer parts, I just really wish people would stop doing this kind of stuff to their vehicles… vanity is a cruel mistress. Let's just hope the headlights get adjusted soon. Thanks for another great video.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Quick says:

    Energy Suspension after market polyurethane bushing kit would solve your problem and make for a better overall completion to your project.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Smith says:

    Upper ball joint bolt…. when it stopped, lube and go back on- rinse and repeat. Hell gravity was in your favor.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Skyles says:

    Again, you should pronounce the K in Knipex.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheMinecraftReloaded says:

    Hah, this is your average job here on the east coast. Using something like a ball joint press to get bolts like that out is usually a good idea.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wskripka1 says:

    Why bother for just 2 inches ?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff 7.62 says:

    BOB! ANSWER THE PHONE!!!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars seapeddler says:

    How can there be a danger using a non-factory bolt?
    Where does Dodge get bolts from, if not a bolt factory, as does the Fastenal joint.
    A Gr 10.9 is so, regardless of where it is from.
    And why doesn't the factory not use anti-seize on the critical fastener shoulder ?
    Shock, shame and confusion surround this repair.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars viewatyourownrisk says:

    Thanks Ray.

    I gotta tell you, this video is basically double entendre from start to finish.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrMatsback says:

    have always used a small smear of grease on the upper joints to assist in the said procedure if the said procedure should ever need to be done again 🙂

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars uenragedbro says:

    You win some, you lose some. Keep up your positive attitude dude, you got this!

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beil no says:

    Having had to do custom work that factory bolts no longer work for, there are definitely some bolts that I have replaced with the same or better grade of bolt. That being said the bolt store is not going to have the offset alignment bolts that will work, so at that point might as well wait for all oem.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Moore says:

    Always look before you agree to a repair

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Smith says:

    They probably have to order the bolts from Mexico where the trucks are made… Lol

  51. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Auto Teck says:

    Cam bolt kits are available at Napa and carquest
