This puller worked well at separating the lower ball joint from my control arm. Even after machining some material off the arms, the puller removed the ball joint with no breakage that others claim. Soak the joint with penetrating lube before-hand.

I bought this to remove the pitman arm on my 1999 jeep wrangler. It was cheap, so I guess I got what i paid for. It moved my pitman arm, MAYBE a 1/4 inch before snapping and becoming completely useless. This was the first time using the tool, right out of the package. Not sure if it will work for your job, but it didn't do the job for mine.

Comments about AutoCraft Pitman Arm Puller:

Even after a discount, this was a useless tool for me. As you can see, the bolt is steel, but the puller is aluminum. This thing stripped out and I did not even have that much torque on it.

Be sure to tap your pitman arm with hammer while you use it or you'll likely break it. Take your time!

      Comments about AutoCraft Pitman Arm Puller:

      I bought this to remove the pitman arm on my '92 Jeep Wrangler. Several other reviews mentioned having problems and tool breakage when used on a Wrangler pitman arm. I was worried about breakage after reading those reviews and used the tool cautiously, taking care not to overstress the tool itself.
      For use on my Wrangler, I found the opening on the end of this tool was too narrow for the splined shaft on my steering gearbox. I filed just enough metal off the tips of the fingers until the tool would fit. Before use, I also lubricated the bolt threads with grease to prevent damage to the threads of the tool. I then alternated between tightening the bolt and then hitting the bolt head and pitman arm with a 4lb hammer, repeating this process until the pitman arm popped loose.
      This is a cheap imported tool, from China, and I used it as such. I mainly bought it for this one time use, but may be able to use it for univeral joint replacement in the future? Overall, considering the low cost and the fact that it worked for me, I am happy with it. Use it with care, keep the threads lubricated and it should get the job done.

        No matter what sales people say about China and they're improving quality, they still miss the mark and make my life miserable. This part was new, and out of spec for the opening clearance. Job comes to a stop.

          Picked this up to pop the outer tie rod ends without resorting to a hammer. Worked perfectly. Looking forward to keeping this around for the many times I needed a generic puller.

              This puller looks good with a fitting design but the threads on the bolt strip when tightening rendering it useless. I was really disappointed with it's performance. I bought another puller from another vendor for only a few dollars more that did the job very quickly. Not recommended.

                Although this product is small, it performs big. No problem removing the pitman arm from my 93 Jeep YJ, tap tighten, tap tighten and off it came.

                  Does this break as quickly as Autozone's puller. It is an OEM brand, I have broken 2, both with greased threads and little torque.

                    A:

                    The arm must be really stuck on there if you have broken two of these already. I would suggest getting some lubricant or penetrating oil and spraying down where the pitman arm is stuck and letting it soak. Try doing this a few times to see if things will free up some and then try breaking it loose again.

                  I own this puller. It is to small! It will not fit over the pitman arm on my 77 f150. Do you offer a larger one? Maybe in the rent a tool program?
