Wheel Bearing Pullers
I have looked into this last month ans this is what I found. One tool
is listed on
http://220.127.116.11/toolstore and it costs $300. One lister suggested
Proper Tools for a similar device and it sells for about $285.00. The
trick is to get the right adapters for your car.
Apparently, these pullers work although they requre gorilla upper torso
strength and assorted hand tools for holding/ blocking. Nevertheless, I
am planning to buy one as the alternatives are grim. One garage quoted
me $250 per side, not to mention the cost of the alingment and attitude
they gave me after I inquired about their installation method (puller,
press, big hammer) and the possibility of bringing in my own parts
(Carlsen $60 (kit): Theirs $100 just the bearing).
I figure that if I buy the tool, I will recover its cost just after one
side. Then, the car has 3 more sides and these things are not exactly
durable. In addition to financial benfits, one can take care to do a
high-quality job and inspect and replace releated components. Finbally,
doing a job like that brings immense sense of satisfaction.
