Dont be the guy using a screwdriver to stretch springs & pliers on the backing plate retainers. No, this is not a lifetime warrantied tool from the big guys BUT for the low price it does many jobs & will last longer than it really should-pricewise. The right tool for the job makes everything easier.

      Comments about AutoCraft Brake Spring Pliers:

      I truly should have returned this item since it did not help me on the job that I performed. My guess is that this tool is intended for trucks or larger vehicles as I have a Toyota Camry and it did not help me one bit. It seems to be a solid tool but not intended for small or medium size vehicles. I was not able to use any of its "featured" uses as it was too big.

          For the price, it can't hurt to buy them and have them on hand in case they help, but on my 2008 Pontiac Vibe, regular pliers worked better for reattaching springs. I would buy a separate hold down spring tool.

              Comments about AutoCraft Brake Spring Pliers:

              Ordered brake tool online for replacing rear brakes on my Ford Taurus. This tool works for the spring removals and the clip/spring removals. A basic brake tool, but not of the highest quality. While it will do the occasional job, it shouldn't be used for daily work as I don't believe it will hold up. The end rounded spring clip on the pliers does get stuck on the other plier end sometimes, and the metal is soft, but as I said, it does what it is suposed to.
