GOOD BYE Snap, Mac, Matco, Proto, SK, and all of you other overpriced tools. Hello Sunex--that are just as good or better and about 1/3 the cost. The cost of universal joint 1/2 drive impacts is ridiculous. A set of 10 starts at about 300$ for the lower priced brands, and if you go to our friends on the trucks, be prepared to pay 400-600$. You can get a set of sunex for 100-150 and they are excellent. The quality is just as good or better, and they are professional tools. I am sad to say----YES ITS SAD--these are NOT USA MADE. HOWEVER---
Gear wrench, craftsman (some soon to be all), MAC, and MATCO are made in korea or taiwan. I got some matco on a warranty replacement and they came in a small plastic bag, "Made in taiwan" Its just the way it is---I prefer US made, but its not practical and I cannot afford to pay 50$ per wrench or socket.
Great tool, but I did not receive what is pictured. What I received was a 12 point - 12mm swivel socket permanently fixed on the end of a 1/2" drive 3" extension. This is a more effective set-up as it will prevent binding of the socket end on the driveshaft.
It is a bit wide for my application (1986 Ford Thunderbird V6 with AOD transmission) but I was able to get 120lb-ft of torque onto my driveshaft bolts to the rear differential. Price was really good compared to the competition.
Since the uni was so wide, I couldn't get the socket fully seated on the bolt so I was really worried about stripping/shearing.
