  • Want a ghetto advice? Use a smaller bolt, weld it to the bigger bolt that is broken, get it out. Or use a steelrod, weld it to the bolt that broke, use a grinder to flatten two sides of the rod, then use a wrench to get it out. have saved me on many old rosty Volvos :P But never forget, pray, alot. lmao

  • What size are the wheels. How do the springs feel? I often hit the bottom with my z3. I don't know if my springs are too old. Or that my wheels are too big. I am considering buying this set of springs as well. I have read that they are stiffer. so I hope to hit the bottom less. I have already replaced all the shock absorbers. that didn't help.

  • 11:20 had the same thing with my Ram 2500 and had to buy a new hub, only I was taking the bolts off when several of them broke because that's just the way things go when you're working on a 22 year old truck in Minnesota

  • They are really messing with ethan lol, should've tought him about using hand tools first tho and then later went to the gun as if he doesn't know how tight to put it by hand then he's definitely going to break bolts the first few times he uses the gun.... and how did it take you guys 10 hrs to do a brake job and change out springs lol, did this on a car for the first time and it only took me like 2 hrs to do all the springs and then another 30 mins to do the brakes lmaoo (the car I did it on was also a pile of rust)

  • you have all those tools there but no welder? see if you had had a welder you could have welded the the bolt head back on and then slowly undone the bolt like that. it isnt easy and doesnt always work, but more often than not it will be your only job and take about 10-15 minutes

  • I feel like Ethan deserved way more respect than he got here. This is quite an involved job even for an experienced DIYer. For a newbie it was probably quite daunting - guys should have been more supporting of that, he did good for a first time job!... The Ethan of 3 years ago wouldn't have even attempted such a thing, so credit where it's due, he has grown as person. Maybe not a true car guy just yet, but well on his way.
