Comments about AutoCraft Tie Rod Separator:

Replaced one set of tie rod ends using this tool and it already looks as though it's been abused for years. Low quality metal

    Comments about AutoCraft Tie Rod Separator:

    Survived but there is noticeable marring on the prongs. Striking surface seems to be pretty durable.

      Comments about AutoCraft Tie Rod Separator:

      Two good solid smacks with an appropriate sized hammer made quick work of separating my tie rod end.

      Money well spent, especially when you take advantage of coupon codes, pay online and pick it up at the local store.

          Worked very well, did it's job flawlessly. However, the shaft is hard to hold with firm grip due to no grip tape or such, my only complaint.

          This tool is not spaced wide enough to fit around the stud on my 86 F-150. I had to modify it with a grinder.
