TexasDog3: Do you have a video that addresses a 2005 Buick Lesabre Custom lower control arms replacement for the rear end and front end? If not, which one will work? Also do you have any videos showing shock/strut replacement for the front and rear end of the same car?
Kade Miller: What should be done if the upper bolt is seized inside the bushing? Nut spins off just fine, but the bolt is all but combined with the bushing. Same thing happened with the lower bolt but was able to apply enough torque with a cheater bar to actually rip the center of the bushing out with the nut.
evilcowboy: Your parts are the cheapest I have seen to address the cheap stock trailing arms. You guys solution is far better and as always your videos are excellent. I usually just use them to check out what I am in for when doing a job since you do a lot of northern cars I run into the same stuff as you do.
Will be buying these shortly for both my GM cars. Thanks.
bsedgal: Thanks for the how to. I did this today on a 2000 intrigue with some major rust problems. There were some differences with this car but the job was still pretty similar. Almost all bolts were stuck in the bushings and needed to go to the hardware store for replacements. What helped was removing the trailing arm bracket and then putting it in a vise to pound out the bolts. Especially when just working under jack stands.
Genghis Khan: Great video thanks a lot friend :)
woofdawgg69: Wow I didn't know you were 1aaout! I mean I've seen many of your dyi videos but it just never clicked that your 1aauto... Wow I almost always buy my parts from that sight.
desertfox2020: I had no problem getting the nut off of the rear bolt, but no matter what I can not get the bolt itself to come out or even turn. I put enough force on the bolt with a breaker bar that I lifted the car up, pivoting it on one of the jack stands, but it wouldn't turn at all. Seeing as I'm going to have to cut it off, where would I find a replacement bolt?
wisconsindabber: what would you recommend doing if the upper control arm bracket is rusting? should i just use some C channel steel what the arms fit into and weld it into place?
Phil Meagher: Can you elaborate on what you're doing at the end with the jack? Is the point to have the arm under press (loaded with the cars weight) when you torque it? Also- how big a deal is it if I don't have a torque wrench? I have a general idea of 80lbs is like...not THAT tight. I know I'm late in this comment. Thanks anyway!
1A Auto Parts: You can replace just the bad one. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com
rafaelborja891: Is it better to replace both or just the one you have bad? Because on my grand prix I have one of those bent lil not all crazy but still
etyrnal: i think this is what i experienced on my Impala. Had to remove the saddle/bracket that hold trailing arm to undercarriage (that's the ONLY thing the 15mm socket was for)
etyrnal: Thanks! Watched your vid, and did this on a 2000 Impala. No room on ends of forward trailing arm bolt/nut. Had to remove "saddle"/bracket from bottom of car. Trailing Arm bolt was FROZEN into the metal tube in side the bushing. Had to DRIVE the bolt out. P.s. one of the 15mm bolts that holds the 'saddle' to the undercarriage unscrewed 1/2 way then sheared w/ about 3/4" sticking out -- could NOT remove it.
1A Auto Parts: The video we have for the Chevy impala will be the exact same style as your Grand Prix
Roddy229X: Do you guys have a video for the switch and regulator on a 1999 Grand Prix coupe? Both of my car's windows are sticking, and it's very frustrating to try and deal with the local service department
