    Thumbs up

    My cousin told me that a dealer needs to install the torsion keys because the tool is like 800 bucks, so I'm glad that someone has some problem solving skills and shared the experience. Thanks for the info.

    The tools dont cost that much! You can get one here for $150. http://www.readylift.com/p-62-torsio...ding-tool.aspx
    Everyone in town wanted $225 and up to install. I wasnt about to buy the tool or pay for someone to install. Ill definitely post some pics later on today.

    I think you can buy them from most places that sell the keys for $80 or $90 I just bought a 7-ton 2 jaw puller from Sears for $40. You also can rent a 2 jaw 5-ton puller at some autozones (not at mine though) which should be plenty more than enough

    There are several tool companys that make a t/key removal tool ranging from $200 down to $50. Check with Snap-On, thats where I got mine.
