Learn how to replace rusty leaf springs, shackles, and leaf spring mounting brackets in your truck or suv. I also show how to replace leaf spring bushings and remove the rust and undercoat the frame of your vehicle. We lift the truck in the process by using Chevy/Dodge lowering shackles which fit the Ford Ranger/Mazda B-Series trucks.

I hope you guys are ready for what I have been working on… It's going to be an epic next few months. That's all I gotta say about that.

And what did you think of my new shirt/design I was wearing at the end? Want one?
Make sure you hit that notification bell so you can get updates when I post the next YouTube videos!!!
Yes rebuild those old trucks
Don't shackles flatten the leaf springs over time?
Wow. Very very good at explaining and being thorough!! Great job!!
Is it just me that i'm getting so angry with the build quality of these vehicles? Couldn't they just use this spray paint for rust protection from the factory? You spend so much money to buy a car / truck and you should demand these things to come as standard.
Great tutorial – Clean. Filmed with good light, not a lot of useless talking. A+
I would recommend pb blaster for rusty bolts
God bless you. You should have your own school facility all over the world
Wow, this was a great video, clear, concise and extremely helpful. My 97 Jeep Cherokee Sport is sagging badly, even though I have ten thumbs, I may try this repair myself.
Подорожник на раму приложи. Должно помочь.
I got a leaf from my front yard and some chalk from the dollar store….. I’m ready to fix my car now 🤓
When I was younger I heard your advice and checked for rust before remembering I live in central Queensland and that we don’t get rust here what do ya know still got the factory black
Your a genius and make the most entertaining videos on YouTube sir.
Very easy instructions , Thank you, The narrative also super, Keep up the good work,Great video.👍🔧🔩🎓
That rubberized undercoat kills trucks. Just use fluid film or krown.
yo fam stop spraying me
Thanks Chris. The dealership is trying to charge me over $2,000 for parts and labor. It looks like I can get all the tools plus parts and deal with with the rust for a little over $400.
This makes me glad I live in Arizona
11:36…..this works to but I also found that a ball joint remover will work to without heat use a Shity socket or metal collar to go over the rubber part and just like a ball joint just use an impact and run it out
That rubberized coating is gonna give you trouble down the line….
3:27 looks like Chris' Braker bar dissapeared
Chris you are a beast! Great video brother!
why are you painting your camera
Chris will ALWAYS get a like from me
5:13 "just be prepared it's PRETTY heavy" duuude it's hella heavy 😂I work in a warehouse that ships leaf springs
