Hey guys,

So here is my latest video on how to replace control arm bushings. Instead of replacing the whole control arm for $60+ you can get a pair of bushings for $15 and press the old ones out and press the new ones in. For the upper control arm you have to make sure your ball joint is good on but on the lower control arm the ball joint is replaceable so this video is perfect! Also, the lower control arm is super expensive on our trucks for a good one, so this is a great method to keep costs down! I rented a ball joint press for free (the bushing press was rented out already) and it worked great.

Let me know what you think and hopefully this helps everyone
