    Got mine from Halfords. They are doing a kit but I just bought the Jack and Axle stands. I also bought a wheel brace from there. 19/17mm socket came with it. The Vecs and Siggys are 17mm.

    Sealey also have some good stuff but they were dearer than Halfords when I got mine.

    Can't find the wheel brace but it's a Draper and is telescopic like the one Ben bought.

    The best wheel brace is a 1/2" breaker bar and a set of proper alloy wheel sockets (plastic sleeved).
