Awesome little tool!
This tool is an absolute necessity for DIY Tie Rod Changes. This takes the pain out of removing the inner tie-rod and was worth its weight in gold. Must have.

Tie Rod End Tool
Great tool . It made an impossible task possible. No way could I have torqued the inner tie rod ends to the specific ft.pounds without this tool. The frosting on the cake: the price was very affordable. Thanks A1 C Dixon Mesquite,TX

Great time saver
An inexpensive solution to what would otherwise have been a difficult removal/installation. Well worth the money.

The Unit I received had a round hole rather than a 3/8" Square
This is a cheap and simple tool for loosening and tightening inner tie rods. That said the unit that I received had a hole drilled where the square for the 3/8" square drive was supposed to be broached and would not. I was able to use it by putting an open-end wrench over the square boss where the square drive was supposed to go. Ill probably try to use a triangle file to square the round hole. It was an obvious flaw and annoying.

Excellent tool!
Bought this with my front end kit and it was a wise decision. It made changing the inner tie rod ends a breeze. Works perfectly!

Came in handy
This came in handy. I could only get my truck up off the ground, as high as my jackstands. I used a 3/8 to 1/2" adapter and purchased a 36" extension. The inner tie rod came off very easily.

Great tool, paid for itself!
The tool allowed me to remove the inner and outer tie rods as a unit without depressing them and changing the alignment. I matched my replacement pair to the overall length and installed with the same tool and my alignment needed no adjustment when checked at a shop.

Must Have Tool!
I was a little skeptical of purchasing this tool because its much more compact compared to the "auto store" rentals Ive used in the past. This tool works excellent! Fits anywhere in your toolbox and no more trips back and forth to the "auto store for a rental. Must have tool for the DIYer!!

Glad I bought it...
Glad I bought it as it does work but I would have rather have the wrench Sue had in her video. I am still looking for that wrench.

Make life easier
This tool is so simple, yet saved me so much time dealing with my inner tie rods. I would recommend you buy this if you are replacing your inner tie rods.

How does this tool even work???

It would clamp on to the inner tie rod and give you a point to insert a ratchet to turn the tie rod. Thanks!
