You can sometimes get loaner tools from your local AutoZone
These tools are expensive,and hard to justify buying them for such infrequent use

I rented an otc from oreillys and wouldnt get it out.. clamp starts expanding...i read the snap on are stronger thus the search...

I know they are pricey... hoping to find a used set i can resell later or just rent outright....

Thanks

I've changed a few sets with the OTC tools and never had any issue.
They sometimes need persuasion by BFH on the side of the knuckle with the clamp as tight as you can get it

Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:
