Rear LCA bushing install
A little random shop talk as we install Energy Suspension bushings in the rear lower control arms of a '90 AWD GSX. As you can see these bushings are very easy to install and don't require any special tools. These bushings are stiffer than the factory rubber bushings, and while it's a very small part of the job, I just wanted to illustrate 2 things.
1) we didn't overlook them
2) we don't always have the discipline to keep quiet and maintain a high value of production quality.
This video is NOT INTENDED TO FLAME POPULAR TV SHOWS because I love all gearheads. Shop ethics are always a point of criticism, and in no way are these comments intended to insult ANYONE'S work ethics or projects. We're ribbing the production crews and personalities of the Sunday morning cable lineups that have thankfully entertained us... for days if not months of our lives. We will watch it anyway. We're gearheads.
Even on jobs that seem tedious it's important to maintain your sense of humor and enjoy yourself.
