    Please vid the repair nightmare … front ballpoint repair … 2003 Suzuki Aerio … both lower control arm bushing bolts broken off … now what?!

    What year vehicle? Is there a torque wrench on premises?

    chrysler/dodge front suspension is such junk once you get in there you might as well order a whole new front suspension from A Auto. Even worse with these Pacificas the whole engine cradle rusts out. I'm in the middle of Illinois it has got to be the worst state for rust.

    I'm doing the arms on my mom's 07 but the bolts were seized and my torch was broke so I cut the bolts out that were seized (the main two mounting bolts. Well 4 really if you count both control arms) but I really should have known that of course since it's me were talking about, those bolts have been discontinued and are basically impossible to find. The nuts that are tac welded on the piece of oval steel too need to be replaced as well but like the bolts have also been discontinued and I cant find any on any part stores site. The specifications of these nuts and bolts aren't online either. So I have no idea how to obtain them. Other than checking junk yards which is my next step I suppose…unless someone on here has any better ideas or ways to get it done. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!

    I just did this today but I wasent as lucky to get the front bolt out. It was frozen in the rubber mount and ended up cutting the bolt. A real pain.

    Never start a job after a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, 😂. That sugar is going to put you to sleep. Definitely not a NY car, didn't see a spot of Rust on it and bolts came out smooth.

    Are Pacifica’s any good or typical
    Chrysler junk??

    I need to do this to my 1999 Caravan LE. I was quoted $320 for both lower control arms. I found a new pair from an online auto parts shop for $104. Is this too good to be true? They are a popular Internet retailer. Is it possible or too difficult to just replace the worn bushings? Thanks!

    This is a great video- but my 2008 town and country's has a 4.0 v-6, and its seems the drivers side lower control arm front bolt hits the lower engine upon removal. do I have to lower the sub frame to get that bolt out?

    Is this issue causing my vehicle to wobble/shake when making a left turn?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Ross says:

    I saw you using an wishbone type control arm tool. I bought one. It’s almost as good as Jelly

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Brabant says:

    when you find something like this. Do you Eric find it cheaper to change the whole part out instead of changing out the damaged part. Love your videos and been a fan for years. Love your style, the way you value your customers. The apprenticeship program your apart of. Your a good man Eric O!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kentbarger says:

    It would be nice if you would let you know what size wrenches or sockets you will need

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kentbarger says:

    It would be nice if he would say the actual size of the bolts and nuts why he is doing

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Drew Duncan says:

    Hey Mr O! Just wanted to make sure, but it IS important to have some tension or close to vehicle weight on the lower control arm like you did in the video, before torquing down the bolts, right? I’m about to replace the lower arms on my wife’s 2006 Sequoia and I really respect your car knowledge. Just wanted to double check that with you. Thanks and keep up the great videos!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fabulous Mo says:

    Hello! What size and length is the extra long wrench used to remove the ball joint nut please? Thank you!
