Keith Hastings: When you have the new arm installed and the ball joint pinch bolt tightened, and both upper bushing bolts are in with the nuts started, reinstall the wheel and set the vehicle on ground. Jounce (bounce, or cycle) the suspension to put the bushings in a curb height resting place. Start the engine and the turn the wheel to the right, and when you have enough room to access the bolt turn the wheel slightly left so there's no tension on the bushing. Tighten the bolt to factory specs. Then turn the wheel the opposite direction and repeat the procedure. This will insure there will be no bushing bind period because the vehicle is at curb height. Perform a thrust angle alignment afterwards...subscribed, great video!

Mark Ramirez: Hi, Thanks for the Good Video. Quick question, what are the driving symptoms of a loose or worn ball joint. Also, If i want to replace the ball joint, do i HAVE to replace the Upper Arm...
newstart49: Did it need alignment?
Arturort Cruz Perez: a hora en español
Carl Bryant: You didn't tell how to remove the plastic shield, or give any bolt and nut size. Also giving tork numbers are very helpful.
DZEyoyo123: If you are a mechanic, are you authorized to do your own state inspection on your own vehicle?
Bou Phomvongsavad: thanks for taking the time to make the video!
Finskr16: umm, this title is a little misleading, you replaced the control arm, not really the upper ball joint...
Myreverlation: Hi I Have A 2004 Ford Explorer Xlt Can you Tell Me How Many Ball Joints Are On That Model Cause The Repair Men I'm Dealing With Is Trying To Get Me Please And Thanks
Ps How Many Ball Joints Does This One Have?
MUSTANG408W: Pretty much straight forward in the video, BUT you ddn't even bother to silicone grease the bushings or clean the rust off that hardware. That's cutting corners in my opinion.
170324341a: What would you have done - your "go to" - if the control arm bolts were seized in the bushing?
vag lick: just did mine, makes me jellous that that cars from the states are so clean underneath
Kubeanie Gaming: No grease fitting cheap part
