In this video I replace the broken rear springs in the back of a 2010 Kia Sedona along with the rear shocks. Its a job that goes way better than I ever expected it too. - Enjoy!

    Did you replace the spring insulators or did you use the old ones?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Morgan says:

    How about replacing the lower bushing kia sodona?

    I'm going to install sumo springs all around to help out with the weight, this van is almost 5k pounds, at least the EX …

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Sutcliffe says:

    I notice you used krown penetrating oil but fluid film rustproofing. Do you not like Krown rustproofing? I’m in Ct and have a tough time obtaining krown but I’m told by many it’s better. You being closer to Canada probably can get it easier. Just wondering

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gunnar Poe says:

    You probably already do this but I thought of a way to get ride height for tightening bushings. Raise the assembly just until the weigh is suspended by the jack.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zoran S says:

    Penetrating oil = 1 Rust = 0

    Question: would it be easier loosening the outter control arm bolt and removing the inner control arm bolt(while supporting the control arm) to lower the control arm and remove the spring? I would think, since the spring is closer to the outside of the control arm, there would be less torque on the inner end and therefore easier to reinstall, plus less shimying around than the knuckle end. I'm about to do my springs on my 2008 Kia Sedona(New York car- 140,000 miles- regularly undercoated)

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Currie says:

    Quick question. Your video was a big help in maybe figuring out my issue I'm having with my 06 Sedona. The vehicle has been to two different shops to find a banging noise in the rear suspension. They can hear it in the test drive but can't find the problem. The van has 260k on it. The shocks were replaced when I bought it and the lower control arms in the rear had new bushings put it. The banging issues begins after more then one bump in the road. A little single bump won't make any noise. Also the front struts were just replaced and now the van sits low in the rear. So with all of this and before I decide to replace every part in the rear suspension how do I check to see if the sprigs are bad. Also the van did a lot of hauling.

    Good Job. I’m sure glad I dont have to deal with all those Crusties like you do…

    Every time you've said Deez nuts I can't stop laughing it's such a worn out joke but when you say it it gets revived😂

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars denis st-cyr says:

    QUESTION to Eric (or youtubers here) : My knuckle bolt is rust frozen in his bushing/ knuckle ..All the others arms are free…Can I disconnect all the non-frozen arms(and swaybar link and shock)) and lower the whole knuckle assembly in order to remove (and replace) the coil spring without disconnecting the lower arm I mean the camber adjutment bolt(and lower arm) will remain in place ? Mine is a Sonata 2009…similar suspension.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jo Marz says:

    Waw, that'd need more than shocks and breaks, if I were to be the owner I'd also change those shock brackets , and it surely needs a whole break system replacement…

    Just wanted to thank you for this video.

    Wife and kids got in the car last week and she said she heard a noise like a gun went off in the garage! I looked underneath later and saw paint flakes all around under the left rear spring. I thought I was going to need spring compressors and it would be really involved.

    After seeing your video I had the confidence to do it myself. Looked forever for a decent price spring and finally got a Kia spring for $110 shipped. Got it done tonight. Thanks for your videos!

    a lot of miles on a 10 year old Sedona…. 'until it becomes kinetic' … snarky but very true. Mechanics can get hurt in an instant by one goof… Steel and hundreds of pounds can move very quickly…. awful music track at the end.

    2006 Kia Sedona ….mann, I need your help we in the maintenance dept, are removing the rear lower control arm/drivers side crossbeam arm, etc…and the lowest bolt through the spindle is stuck in the bushing, the nut is off but the bolt wont slide out and we so far damaged the rubber on the bushing also

    Someofthemonkey funny

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Car Stuff says:

    Can someone explain to me why this cheap family van has full independent rear suspension? It's not like the person is going to be taking sharp corners as a fast speed. It will still have tremendous amounts of under steer, and probably topple over on its side if it took a corner too quickly. I feel like a semi independent torsion beam system would fit better and bring the overall price down too.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AJ Jurashen says:

    Man I'd give both my lugnuts to have access to a lift. I just love your videos! I been binge watching them all and they are all awesome!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Veinotte says:

    Thanks for the video. I'm attempting this tomorrow. If you were doing this again I saw on another video that they took the inner bolt completely out on the control arm and let it pivot on the outer. Looks to of gave better leverage… well they still struggled. Any suggestions? Plus when you were jacking the control arm back up into place was there a jack stand at the front of the vehicle? Thanks

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicole Guerra says:

    Thank you for posting this video, I had a question on what spray were you using on the parts after you removed them and the rubber top for the spring?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas gamble says:

    Does your town not have a car wash? Seems like half the vehicles that come in have salt corrosion…I know it’s New York State but spray that crap off!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJB says:

    A lot of Kia's pass through your shop.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Barry McKinley says:

    Why do I find all of your videos so soothing?? Makes my day!

    The NAPAr up here closed up a few months ago ago… So sad.

    Where on Earth did you find the springs?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy B says:

    Very good video thanks I just bought a 2012 Kia sedona and good to see how this job was done

    I've been to South Korea 20-30 times. I use to fly cargo in DC-10`s and MD-11`s into/out of Kimpo and later the Incheon airport. If you have not read any books about the Korean war, you should. What a mess!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tmaxx chuck says:

    how are those shocks i need a set for my car

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cubleycat says:

    So satisfying when you use the spray grease 🤗

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Brown says:

    Have you tried the new inductive bolt heaters? I've seen them in use. They only heat the bolt or nut, not the surrounding CV boots… Have smoked a few in my day..

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HunterShows says:

    Today on the Not Napa Hour, we're using these fine Napa parts (not a sponsor) to repair this suspension.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Taboadela says:

    What is the part number for the aftermarket springs? Napa by me claims they don't have them? not going to pay OEM prices.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Kothe says:

    Deeze nuts😂

    I love how you discuss complex physics terms and make geeky physics jokes. Usually not something your local mechanic/tech usually jokes about. Thanks for always making me laugh.

    Has anybody ever mentioned that NAPA is the Finnish word for belly button? Just thought you would like to know…

    I love your videos. I live in ft drum and i was wondering if you could help me out fixing my truck. I can drive down to you.

    The other way to burn rubber .. not today.

    Working on Kias and Hyundais over the last 10 years – is that what sold you on looking at the Sedona as a replacement for the Odyssey? I had a Sedona as a rental (they ran out of small sedans) and the thing was a really nice ride for a minivan. Also fit all the car parts I needed for a car I was fixing up (body panels – doors, fenders, hood, bumper etc).

    Nice work as usual !!! Nice to see bolts zipping out of their schlotss without any fan fair. Your torches must have felt sad and neglected…luckily there's plenty of Fords and Subarus to keep them entertained haha.
