WTF WED! "I like to live dangerously" EDITION!
Today we have someone who got their car inspected JUST IN TIME! The customer tried to save some money with installing their own parts and unfortunately it almost ended in tragedy.
For those who don't know the issue here, the ball joint is not fully seated here. The recessed area of the "cup" is designed to have the bolt run through it so it can't pull out. The ball joint in question here was only tightened around the top collar and and the bolt was ran all the way through. Basically, if they would have encountered one of the infamous Chicago potholes it may have damaged up a LOT of stuff or maybe caused an ugly accident.
There is a reason experts get paid what they do to do the things they do. While I'm all for people learning on their own cars, if you don't know or something seems wrong, ASK! It could save you from a LOT of heartache, headache and money being uselessly spent! ... See MoreSee Less
This would be the most SKETCHY roll center adjustment ever lol.
You know something that surprises me. If you are learning to work on something take an extra minute or two and snap a few pictures. You know for reference. So that 3 hours later when you’ve taken 13 extra parts off you can see how it all goes back together. Then maybe look at the before pics and see if there’s anything drastically different when you are done. That works on anything mechanical not just cars...
I hear this is the new diy RCA kit.
The one I've heard about is when they drill the pinch bolt it after it breaks and over size the hole and don't up the bolt size to compensate
I don’t know about that coz when I asked professional to change front control arm rear bush, the big middle bolt was soooo lose.
i'm still surprised i wasn't a "wtf wednesday" when i drove my car to six star with no fpr 😂
You know, I’m really surprised I wasn’t featured on WTF Wednesday, with that whole axel mess...
With the available information out there, there is no excuse other than common laziness or ineptitude. With potential catastrophic consequences.
Not seeing how they'd get the factory bolt back in as it passes through the ball joint cup, and the head of the bolts dont look hammered.. Extended ball joint maybe?
SMDH, hopefully that owner received a stern tongue lashing along wth with the bill.

If you have a cage and crash driving it to get ice cream you'll probably crack you're head on the cage. Thanks for clearing it up. SM is my class too so.
