    Default Inner Track Rod Tool

    Hi Guys

    I know there are a few threads regarding Inner track rods and they all say that you can just use a set of Stilsons or adjustables.

    I have just had a look under the rubber boot in preperation for changing mine next weekend and there aint a lot of room !!!!!

    This tool seems to be the kiddie has anybody used one ?

    OMG...Piece of cake to use this tool and it only cost £15 of fleabay..

    1HR 30mins to change both inner tie rods and that includes jacking up and taking the wheels off.....

    Amazing little tool and to be honest i cant see how you can get a set of grips on to do it as some people say,there no room....

    Just had tracking and wheels balanced also,

    She now drives like a dream again.
