    Rated 5 out of 5 by from not pretty built well of quality metal I bought this for a mid 60s GM A frame car. Tool is user friendly with simple hand tools. Don't let photo fool you the metal is hardened. I removed 4 lower and 4 upper control arms my tool worked better than I expected took 2 hours . Note I did spray the bushing area with penetrating oil let set a couple of hours used 1/2 ratchet and open end wrench on one control arm and wife asked me why I wasn't using my new 1/2 impack drive (she bought an L cheapo @ harbor freight for my birth day) so I used the 1/2" impack drive which also worked well. Remember to lube up the threads of screws prior to use and penetration oil old bushing. NOTE : none of my all thread become stretched or gulled. The only improvement would be to include a storage box. I just used duck tape around box which tool came in I'm in my late 60's so fancy plastic case wasn't a deal breaker I have recommend this tool to a few old gear heads. Gods speed and stay well Rich

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must for DIY bushing replacement Tool worked flawlessly for my 1970 cutlass control arm bushings. I used this to effortlessly replace the top and bottom, round and oval CA bushings. Worth the price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The right tool for my application The tool worked very well. I had not issues with removing, or installing, control arm bushing on my 66 Chevelle. My only complaint is that the threaded rods for both the upper and lower control arm bushing s bent very easily. Still functioned, but could have been of better quality for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient Definitely a convenient kit but the threaded rod for the upper control arm was easily stripped and bent. I had to order a replacement threaded rod, so that's extra time and money. They could easily supply an extra threaded rod because I'm sure it's a pretty common failure. So, the kit itself is convenient. Gear Heads know the value of having the right tool for the job. My only complaint is the failure of the threaded rod, which is vital to removing the upper control arm bushings. And you'd better have a breaker bar on hand.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not work on 2nd gen camaro As Advertised It may work on other cars, but no a 2nd gen camaro. Engineering is correct. I contacted Ridetech and they admitted they have never tried a 2nd gen camaro to see if it would work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work on 81 Chevy C10 I bought this to remove the bushings on my 81 C10. If your control arm shafts do not have a place to insert the screw then this tool is useless. Once you get the shaft out it works getting the sleeve out but that’s it:

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware, it didnt work on my 1971 a body Im very disappointed to say this tool didnt work for my application although the website guided me into buying it. Shame on jegs for making me waste 100 dollars. It is also quite overpriced for the quality. Should be priced around 40$ max. Unacceptable.
