My ATI didn't come with a new one, so I re-used the original. Don't use a claw type puller on the ATI. It's aluminum. You need a special type puller.

I just lowered mine and used a set of race ramps. Kind of a pita, but it works. You can have the alignment shop do it. I would just make sure they've done it before.
