How to Replace Control Arms and Bushings to Fix a Bouncy Suspension

  • Am 29 Jun 2020 veröffentlicht
  • Learn how to replace control arms and bushings to fix a car with a bouncy suspension. I show you how to figure out what is causing the bounce (shocks or bushings) and then I show you how to replace the upper and lower trailing arms and install new poly bushings. Then we take the DriftStang to the track and test her out!

    HI CHRIS, I own a W213 Mercedes E Class E220 diesel 2016 and it's done 80,000 miles. I just had my service done, changed the oil and the filters but there is now a deep "wob wob wob" sound coming from around where the air filter is. It's not coming directly from the engine. It's a separate sound. I've done a bit of digging and the sound gets louder when i lift the air filter housing slightly exposing the air filter. So I believe the sound is coming from somewhere along the air intake. My mechanic said it could be that the air intake valve is clogged open. I definitely know that it's an air intake problem. As of 5 minutes ago my car has gone into limp mode. If I put my foot down it gains speed very slowly and over revs on every gear before changing up. Check engine light has NOT come on. Can I use something to clean all these components? I can't find where the sound is coming from. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME 🙏😭😭😭

    He kinda skipped over this, saying he knows it’s an issue with the back of the Driftstang, but how can you figure out if your issue is in the front or the rear? I’ve replaced the shocks on my Dakota, but it’s still pretty jumpy. I have the struts for the front ready to go in, but they look fine on inspection. Any tips?

    • ChrisFix
      ChrisFix  Vor 6 Stunden

      I would go under and see if there are any more bushings that look worn, and that should point you into the right direction! If everything looks fine, then get your struts replaced and that should solve any issues you have!

      You can try to flash the ECU, or take one of the PATS keys and put it in the steering column so the car always sees the key with a chip!
