This video series will cover the complete rebuild of the front suspension, steering, and brakes on a GMT400 truck. These trucks ran from 1988-1998.

In this installment of the #ETCGDadsTruck series, I prep and paint the frame and also install new bushings in the control arms.

  1. PLEASE:
    Tell me that THIS front end assembly is close enough to the 1995 Chevy C2500 Suburban (7.4L, 454) front end that I can use these videos to rebuild my front suspension? I was just going to order complete Upper and Lower control arm assemblies and forgo the bushing/ball joint replacements. I also have a complete caliper + rotor upgrade for the truck.

  2. I wonder if there is a hole saw drill bit the would work well drilling this out!! There either do a quick burn off of the remainder or scraping the rest out with a very sharp knife!!

  3. I get the idea of wanting new bushings, tie rods and such. But why not just by new upper and lower control arms and tie rod connectors to save a ton of time and effort! I mean how much is your time worth? If the goal is to educate people on how to remove and replace the bushings, tie rods, ball joints, etc, mission complete! It taught me that it is well worth the money to buy the new arms, which include bushings and ball joints and the tie rod connectors! Great video though.

  4. Wire wheel on a drill man, I ain’t got time for all that scrubbing! Lol love your vids! Just found them this week because my dad and I are rebuilding the engine in my 98 and started watching this series then watch the whole Fairmont, and now watching this series in full.

  5. After wire brushing and brake cleaning, as an extra measure, try applying some Ospho for rust protection before painting. Works good, lasts a long time.

  6. Eric, watta h are you doing? 🙂 You have a plenty of washers and huge puller. Just take a washer near diameter you have, and just press out that rubber. I`ve done it a huge amount of times (sorry, i`m not a native but lovin` your videos) Always pushing wins of cutting and struggling. Anyway, huge Like from me as always. Great soundtrack "Eric vs bushings"
