SOURCE: Upper control arm bushing and upper Ball joint

dealer only or general mechanic to change these parts not really a do it yourself job .do you have a two ton jack ??? or the metal plates in floor to move the suspension to check it ---no take it to a garage trust me it will be cheaper and quicker in the end .you leave something loose or incorrectly fitted and with this heavy lump of detroit steel you could kill a lot of people .

SOURCE: 2000 chevy s10 bad thermostat

the thermostat is located just above the fan shaft, or ontop of the water pump. at least on the 2.2? and 4.3l engines. Which i think was only available. You may have to remove the plastic Vortec cover to see it.

SOURCE: removal/replacement of upper control arm bushing

the a arms need to be removed, and the bushings pressed in and out , then you will need to reinstall them and the truck will need a front end alignment. You really need a qualified person to do this.

SOURCE: I have a 92 chevy S10 truck, how do you remove the

GM S10/S15/Sonoma Pick-Ups 1982-1993 Repair Manual Blade and Arm - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)

  1. Matchmark the base of the wiper arm to the linkage. This will assure the arm is installed in the proper position. If the arm is being replaced, transfer the matchmark from the old component to the new one before installation. This can be done by placing the new arm on top of the old one and copying the mark.

Fig. 2: If no wiper arm tool is available, use a small prytool to depress the spring

Fig. 3: With the spring released, pull the wiper arm from the linkage
  1. Most wiper arms are retained by a spring clip. Some are equipped with a release tab at the center which should be depressed to release the arm. If no tab is provided, use a small prybar or a wiper arm removal tool such as J-8966 to depress the spring and release the arm. Remove the arm from the vehicle.
  2. Some late model vehicles (all 1993 and some earlier models) are equipped with a wiper arm that utilizes a small release hole at the base of the wiper arm. If equipped, insert a 1 / 8 in. drift pin into the tool access hole to release the locking device and allow the arm to be easily pulled from the transmission. If necessary, use a gentle rocking motion to remove the arm.
To install:
  1. Except for late model vehicles equipped with the tool access hole, align the matchmarks and gently press the blade over the linkage and snap into position.
  2. For 1993 vehicles (and earlier models equipped with the access hole on the arm) straighten the arm assembly and insert the pin. Align the arm with the linkage mark made earlier, then press down on the arm's head casting until it seats and locks onto the wiper pin. Remove the drift pin.
  3. Operate the wipers and verify proper alignment.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

I have a 1989 4.3L v6 chevy s10 baja 4x4 and the front tiers wear on the inside of the tire i believe it comes factor with a 4' lift so why is this if possible please help me figure out


if this is an independent suspension vehicle then wheel alignment adjustment is by shims normally under the upper control arm mounting bolts.. (Possibly by the eccentric washes on the bottom bolts) By lifting the body it has effectively given the steering tow out the steering connecting rods are now shorter as the body has been lifted) and that is what causes wear on the inside of the tyres. The tyres are in fact pointing out at the front and are being dragged sideways as they rotate.. Find an accredited wheel alignment shop with an operator that is familiar with aligning raised vehicles and the tyre wear problem will disappear. unfortunately when tyres developer a wear pattern they will retain that wear patter even after an alignment so be prepared for new front tyres as well.

How do I replace the upper Control arms on My 1979 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I saw a replacement control arm that has the bushings and ball joints already installed. I'm trying to save the high labor cost that...


Since the new arm comes with the bushings, there is no reason to get the tool to install them. Upper arms are relatively easy to install...just a bolt out, bolt in operation as the springs aren't involved. Support the suspension under the lower control arm to take any tension off the upper arm.

Bent A-Arm on a 1991 Chevy S10 Blazer...repair$???


I would guess $500 - $1500 to do this job depending on how much damage was done when the arm was bent.

"SMALL OIL AND TRANSMISSION LEAK AND THE RADIATOR LEAKS OUT SLOWLY." -- the radiator leak could get bad enough to require repair.

I think $400 obo is an okay price, can't get much lower for a vehicle that will get you to the store and back.

Ball joints goin out on a 89 chevy s10 blazer


The ball joints are going to be hard to due if you due not have an arbor press in your garage. They are not the kind that you can replace by yourself unforuantely without a press to press them back into the control arm. If you know a good cheap mechanic this would be a good route becuase a shop is going to charge you an arm and a leg to press these ball joints back in for you.

I need to replace upper right ball joint, 98 honda civic


This is a pretty easy job.The way i do it is take the two 14mm bolts louse from the strut on the inner fender well,then take the 17mm bolt out of the bottom of the strut on the lower control arm this will make it drop down.Then take the 14mm bolt louse that fastens the ball joint to the spindle take a hammer and hit the upper spindle and it all will come apart.Now you will have the two bolts that holds the upper control arm in place these are 17mm bolts drop the strut down and remove the upper control arm now you can go in with the new one.Hope this helps !!!

1984 S10 wiper arms


No Problem! Look down on the Bottom of the Wiper Arm, wher it attaches and Swivels. There is a Small tab that comes off of the Upper Part of the Arm that looks like Two Front Teeth Sticking up just a Little. Take a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab Up Towards the Top of the Winshield to Release the Lock on the Arm. then take a Pair of Pliers with Tape on them so that you will not Scratch the Arm and Pull while you Wiggle the Arm right at the Swivel Pont and they will Come off. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
