No air but I do have a Hilti electric impact gun. I'm doing my rear springs this weekend again and all I use is two jack stands and a 4 ton jack.

I live in Florida so the truck has zero rust on the bolts.

DAMN YOU :mad:



Must be nice LOL


No air tools at home for me, was spoiled with them growing up with a 1500sf heated shop with air tools and everything else you could want including a 4' sand blast cabinet.

Takes me well over an hour just to rotate my tires now with hand tools :doh:

So did you just replace your worn springs for new procomp's? Or did you go with something else?

I have air, but most the time I use the electric impact, just as powerfull and no time filling up the tank and then draining it

Honestly I have heard the Mac impacts are better. I have heard(never seen it though) that if you hook up the Mac to the Snap-on, the Mac will turn the Snap-on backwards. Just something to think about, and if anyone else as heard this or different the sorry lol.
