Strut bearing replacement
Just bought a spring compressor to do this job. only special tool necessary here and pretty much the same method on all vehicles. The diagnosis of bad strut bearings can be done trough several symptoms observation : -while getting out of a curve difficulty for the steering to come back centered alone -difficulties to turn the steering wheel while parked -once all front end lifted, difficulty to turn manually the wheels both directions -noises from the hood sides compartment while cruising or running on a bump





Front shocks replacement (Mac Pherson).
To give an idea of the job if you want to do it yourself or if a pro do it for you. it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro. Only special tool needed is a spring compressor. This job must be done with the hands and the brain. There is a very big tension on the spring once compressed. Compression must be equally distributed on the two compressors and they must be positionned in a symetrical way .

Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy After posting the last video on replacing struts I thought I would post this one next. I shot this along with the rest of the Accord front end work that I did last fall. A couple of things are different, the most obvious is that the springs are a much smaller diameter so you really need to be careful when you work with these since the spring compressor doesn't have as much to grab hold of. Second, when you install the struts back on the car care must be taken to get the notch on the strut lined up with the wishbone, if you don't do this the upper wishbone bolt will not go in since it has to fit in a groove on the back of the strut. For the second time I've shown you that I tighten the lower wishbone bolt with the car off of the ground, the fact is I shouldn't do this since I'm told it may ruin the bushing that goes through the lower control arm. I believe this to be possible but I have not experienced any problems doing it this way. For me it just seems like a pain in the butt to try and reach around the tire after I've put the wheel back on. But for those of you that like to point out my faults here is my excuse for not doing it the "right" way. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Be safe and stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

Astra G - amortyzator przedni Delphi 99` vs KYB 11`
Porównanie starego amortyzatora Delphi z roku 99` z nowym Kayaba 11`. Delphi - używając niewiele siły amortyzator można wcisnąć, cofa się ale nie jest to prawidłowa praca. Kayaba - trzeba użyć naprawdę dużo siły aby wcisnąć, wysuwa się także szybciej niż stary delphi. Po wymianie przodu i tyłu auto wreszcie zachowuje się stabilnie i droga hamowania się skróciła ponieważ koła trzymają się drogi.
