    So I have a question for anyone who can answer. I own a Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 03 2.4L and it started doing something unusual now when I reverse and apply gas it begins to shake and when I drive forward around 30mph I get a slight shaking but if I go faster it goes away. Is this a transmission issue? I'm at work right so I haven't had it scanned so I'm just asking if anyone has any info thanks.

    nice vid! is there a specific type of grease for ball joints? Can you also put grease on the bushings? like on that sway bar, on the upper/lower control arm?

    Chris I have a 2005 escalade esv with the rear airbags. My compressor is running a lot more than usual and my truck sits lower than normal while driving and almost a bagged look when parked. How would you suggest I go about fixing or finding out what's wrong.

    I have a 2007 Ford Freestar. I want to go to full a synthetic oil, however my mechanic say's not to do that, because I have been using 5W-20, and the full synthetic is a thinner oil which could cause leaks. Is this true?

    When you check for 'play' in the joints / bushings, is it best to have your car on the ground or jacked up.. or does it depend on what your checking? I noticed you have the car jacked up at the front.. though i watched an Eric the car guy video where he checked bushings at the rear, and he said to not jack up the rear as it'll interfere with locating the source of movement ?

    Reason I ask is, I have an 05' Honda CRV and when I accelerate, generally at a higher speed, I feel a light thumping/vibration in the car.. similar to feel/sound you might get if you have a flat tyre .. though I do believe it's more noticeable during acceleration and reduces/stops (will double check) once I've reached speed.

    I'm planning on checking for play, though not sure how it's best to approach diagnosing.

    When i try to move my tire from side to side i'am able to turn my wheel and i hear what i would say is hydraulic fluid moving around( i get a vaccum squishy sound effect) I do not think that's normal though i do not have any noticeable fluid loss any where or leaks. Noticed the rubber boot was torn where the inner tie rod meets the the outer tie rod so that needs fixed. Any suggestions for a fix?

    Am new to cars. Why do we need to change the whole part not just the worn bushings? I can't seem to get a straight answer to this question. From where am standing it should be easier and cost way less for just that rubber part.

    my 2004 4×4 canyon started making a grinding type noise all of a sudden when driving home from the beach. it does it from about 10-25 mph and only after its driven for at least 20-30 min. almost as though the brake is engaging on the front driver side. what could it be?

    The best suspension video I have watched all day.  THANK YOU! Wish I would have found this BEFORE I put the car back together!  I did try to wiggle the tire to watch for play and didn't see any but the boot on the lower ball joint is all but gone. The upper and the outer tie rod look like crap too so figure I'll just replace it all.  I hear all sorts of rattling when I'm driving (when the road is rough) and it is pulling to one side.  Don't know what else to do.

    Chris – Great video. Sensible and intuitive instructions. One minor criticism. Shouldn't you have the tire on and on the ground when testing outer tie rods? I was taught the alchemy of auto repair by my Father, who was literally there from the beginning, and that was his instruction. I am always willing to learn, and have come to love and appreciate OBDII.  Thanks for your efforts. DaveP

    My car makes a clicking noise when I turn right or left, super annoying and loud and it's constant until I'm done turning. I don't know what is making the sound but maybe you do? My only guess is the spring? Idk…is there something I'm supposed to lube or is my spring getting caught? I'm lost. (Info: My car has annoying Megan coilovers that came on the car when I bought it 3 years ago.)

    Hey Chris, I was looking to buy some new tie rod ends for my 95 isuzu rodeo but im not sure if the ones im planning to buy are greasable. What do I do if I can't grease them after installing them? Leave them be or find greasable ones? I dont want to because they are expensive and my isuzu is my beater car. Advice?

    Got a 2003 Ford Focus SE station wagon #3 vin: Have replaced both strut's(L&R) Lower ball joints(L&R)  Inner tie rod end(L)  Driveaxel(L) Sway bar links(L&R) I notice on my sway bar it shows wear marks from original positioning but it's off to one side more, I know i need to replace bushing cause there worn out and cracked, But would this have any effect on rear well bearing to where they would wear out in a short period of time? asking this because i also replace rear drum and bearings inner & outter(R) and now the (L) is making noise as well (Loud hummmming noise)…
    Now when i drive it on curvy roads and some times on straight roads when i start out from a stop pulls hard(R) and come back when i let up on gas pedal, on turns it feels as if the front tires are trying to go opposite way of turnand comiong out of the turn it falls back in place.
    So whats your thouights on this ….
    Have a good day sir and keep up the videos they a big help to those that don't know as much about automobiles as other.
