Did this video help you?

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?

customlumina: 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!

supertacoman27: try a monte its way more work u cant just slide the bolt out

1A Auto Parts: The video we have for the Chevy impala will be the exact same style as your Grand Prix

speeddemon002: If its a U arm does the whole arm have to come off the change the bushings??

gunhojo: Ok, I see you do alot of GM cars. Is there any way you can do one for a 2000 Toyota Camry? If you can it would be great!

Stanley Hill: WOW!!!!!! NICE VIDEO.....I HAVE A 1994 LUMINA WITH THAT SAME EXACT PROBLEM.......SNAPPED AT THAT SAME SPOT!!!!!!

572dwayne: he got lucky i have 95 grand prix and the metal spacer inside the bushing got squezzed onto the bolt so i had to grind mine off and cut the rubber bushing so i could get to the spacer and heat it and split it so i could get the bolt out lol

Greeneyeddevl: if there bad will they also clunk at a stop or take off?

buggen39: My new arm is offset on one side which side goes to inside of car?

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

stephany wuut: hey there, i got a 95 grand prix, and my trailing arm isnt actually broken, but it has rusted off of where it is held in place on the car, so it is loose, and i was wondering if you had any advise on how i would fix that? like if i would be able to replace where it is rusted out, and maybe have the arm welded back on? im not really sure what to do here :(

1A Auto Parts: You can replace just the bad one. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com

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.

nmattcar: wow those rotors look brand new (sarcasm)

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this particular repair. We'll keep this in mind in the event that we make this type of repair in the future.

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

1A Auto Parts: It should fit in just like the original part does. If there are any issues at all call our sales line @ 888-844-3393 1aauto.com

MrBigbear22: How do fix or change the front an back bumpers on a pontiac grand am 01 to 05

fwflyer78: That's is funny when you say that "This car is ruff".

1A Auto Parts: @gunhojo I've noted your request and when I have a Camry I'll do a video on it.

1A Auto Parts: We sell the a pair of these trailing arm shown in the video complete with bushings on our website. They're a very affordable part that's built better than the original. Part Number: 1ASFK00163 on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
