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

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!

    For those who are still confused on what the shocks do: What we call shocks are actually shock absorbers. When springs are compressed by a bump in the road, they push against that, but they over shoot and extend past the original position if there isn't a counter force. They oscillate back and forth quite a bit before returning to the original position. The shock absorbers stop the oscillation so the car doesn't continue to bounce up and down.
