You might can rent it from Auto-zone or advanced auto or somewhere like that. I know someone who went there to rent something like that but Im not sure if it was THAT tool or not.
Would not hurt to drive down or give your local place a call and find out if you can rent it for a little while..

Alot less $ than paying for shipping both ways :imo :crazy:

I think I read a thread somewhere that said that the T-bar tool is one of the ones that Autozone doesnt have. Sucks.

Ah, really? That sucks.

Well guess I was no help :pow:

:think: Now you got me wondering what tool it was that he went to rent when he did his kit if it was not that tool..:think:

sears or sears.com has a wide selection of them. like this one.
Am I missing something here? Educate me...that link goes to a pulley puller...is that the same tool you are needing Josh? If so, I think my dad has one you can borrow...just not sure if his is the exact size.

Just go to sears and get the 2 jaw gear puller like the one shown on FSC. It's $30. Shipping both ways will probably cost like $20 bucks. Just go buy it and if you don't want it afterwards, return it.

Uh, I've never used a "tool" to remove torsion bars. I put a floor jack under the lower ball joint and put some tension on the suspension on that side, with the trucks frame supported on jack stands of course. I then unbolt the diff end of the cv from the diff and remove the a-arm to frame bolts on the upper a-arm. Once that is done just lower the jack and the assembly will swing down and take the tension off of the torsion bar.

this process crossed my mind before, but i didnt know if the droop stop would limit me out. i guess with the UCA off of the frame that wouldnt be a problem though.
