Looking to recoup some cash before the Christmas-time Visa bill arrives? As we’ve suggested before, you can save a bundle by doing your own brake jobs on the family voiture. And while you can get the job done with basic hand tools, having the right tools takes the job from pain-in-the-ass to not-so-bad.
This particular set looks like a great place to start. It includes a spring compressor (like we wrote about separately before), a spring installer, a spring removal tool, a spring retaining tool, spring pliers, two adjustment spoons, and a mini adjustment spoon — all in a nice, red, blow-molded case.
Those adjustment spoons come in quite handy. Yeah, you can wedge a small screwdriver in there (maybe), but the proper tool gives you more adjustment per stroke — which means less time under the dirty side of the car.
Street pricing starts around $55.
