    Hey Ray, I really enjoy watching your videos. I typically don’t comment on any videos but I felt you deserved some appreciation for your hard work. I have read many comments trashing the way you do things and I completely disagree. Keep doing right by your customers. Lastly I have one request. I really like watching your videos in high resolution HD. Can you keep recording in the highest resolution possible for our viewing pleasure.

    Noooooo..go back to using the old brake clean surprise sound!!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Number 6. says:

    All those loud noises do not record. Everything is at the same volume. As for the truck ; it has just a fine covering of dust , very little rust. Even the stickers are still intact. It is like he only drives it around a warehouse or a dessert. No mud,no grime and the ball joints just fall off. Strange.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Wolenski N8WCR says:

    You should add the sound effect of "dun dun dahhhh" when you show the can of wonder cleaner!

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

    I’ve been getting a kick out of the recent long range “doody doo”

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Lorman says:

    You need a sticker that says “Subscribe” for the lift button!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ericspecullaas says:

    Ray when you said "I shake them left and right, then shake them up and down" you should have said "I shake them left and right then you shake them up and down then you spin the wheel round and round that's what it's all about" would have confused everyone

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars richardwernst says:

    Can you not buy/just replace the ball joints in the arms any more?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Jones says:

    That Duralast Gold UCA is very impressive looking compared to new moog- even the problem solvers. Wow

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Green says:

    …..Ray, what do you think about doing a Live Stream with Eric O?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    where do i get the chain-driven Extention at?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars burner Loco says:

    No torque specs on fords? Or did you just not take video on that step?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yeah Right says:

    I've had bad ball joints before at one point on almost every single car I've ever owned and the ONLY one I've that's actually separated was a Subaru. I'll NEVER own another one EVER and that's not the only reason why.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mission Hills says:

    Wonder how much more it would've cost for tie rod ends and sway bar links? Could've been totally rebuilt, those struts look recent

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vomit Kermit says:

    Hows Sarasota these days?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Thorstad says:

    Um, I very much doubt that those Duralast arms are an improvement over the OE. Regardless of what their sticker says.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JC Mac says:

    New upper control arm has grease fittings, interesting??!!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dirtyharry70585 says:

    You got my wife doing the dodahdodo every time the house phone rings🤪

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Peek says:

    Great job, mate, I must say how much better quality the replacement parts looked, and GREASE Nipples, my God, what will they think of next?
    My first car was a 1964 Hillman Minx back in 1972, and the car had grease points all over the chassis and suspension, that was when you could do your own repairs, without a computer to tell whats wrong, happy days.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tedmich says:

    You can't just replace the joints , you have to replace BOTH arms?? Man thats whack!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars waynedizzzle says:

    Legend

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dog Gone says:

    I remember when replacing control arms and replacing ball joints were two different things. Ball joints were separate pieces bolted on.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Hartman says:

    But it was a GREAT song that was playing! lol

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Clark says:

    Those are the same channel grips that Sears left under my hood!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bigjarn says:

    Is this a modern era common practice? I've not been privy to it ?

    I love the rifle bodied air wand

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tee Anahera says:

    Cotter pin? That’s a split pin in my country. Cotter pins go into a crank of some sort such as the pedal crank on the front sprocket of a bicycle. Love your videos and gives me more confidence to diy more often.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GeekBoyMN says:

    I started fixing cars in the 70s when everything was rear wheel drive and had spindles so I catch myself still saying spindle whether it's a spindle or a knuckle.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Leon says:

    You got lucky there Ray. Did the same job on my buddies truck and the lower control arm bolts were seized and had to be cut out. We would cut them to about 60% of the way through then shear them off and use the nut to drive the broken bolt out. Also replacement bolts were expensive and unobtainium.

    The longer the better! Super talented brother!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mmlchael Curtice says:

    Raymond just watched your January 26th CJ brake job, talk about a silk purse this car was ridden around the city Detroit for 4 years I've been driving up and down to Florida beaches in the surf and salt what a terrible rust job. Must have broke your heart to put those nice brakes on that pile of crap. Good work as usual keep up the good work and the good videos and forget what other people say. Mile marker Mikey Trenton Michigan. 👍❤️✌️🇺🇸😁🌭🚀🍕🌈🖖

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Tipple says:

    Just a question…. Can the ball joints be pressed out?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bluemoth says:

    🥂🤟🤙😃

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Bailey says:

    what are those needle nose pliers with the grip guard?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ramiro Dorado says:

    Hey Ray are you replacing to window regulator on your truck again? If so didn't you replace it a couple weeks ago????

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Bailey says:

    Doorman is the harbor-freight of car parts, but Dura-last is like the Wal-mart…these seem like parts the ford dealer would have in stock, with so many of those station wagons on the road….

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Betts says:

    such a waist , compleat control arm to replace a $30 ball joint …. always thought ford dropped the ball in the mid late 90's in both body an undercarage …. good vid

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Bailey says:

    Was there a time when a ball joint replacement was not an a-arm/wishbone/control arm replacement?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris says:

    I have to get me some of those ginormous snap on vice grips. Very cool, and I assume very pricey. The wife is going to ask how much I spent so I'll just blame Ray. Thanks Ray.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony W. says:

    Doo de doo de doo! That's where we were. 😂. Somehow I knew it was coming too! Lol

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Naggs says:

    How come mechanics do not like working on my 08 4.6l Gt? Is it that much of a pain?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geezbnme says:

    awesome video

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick in Oakville says:

    That is one clean F150, up here the parts would be worth more than the truck

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WarDotZom says:

    WTF I NEED THAT TOOL IN MY LIFE YESTERDAY, chain drive off set extension? amazon here i come.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon StClair says:

    A few months ago, one of the ball joints broke on my dads Toyota Tacoma while driving down the road and it was a mess, it broke both ball joints and the cv axle.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars emoruzzijr says:

    please stop the high speed video we want to see you work in real time no matter how long the video
