Harbor Freight on sale during the holidays, retails at $120 now. Should come in handy for lowered cars being low profile..... I had checked out several and this fit the need and very easy on the back.

But when I called Cincy Speed and asked them about their tool, they said they'd make me one and send it within a couple days. Sure it cost $150, big deal. We did a Camaro meet last Saturday, and one of the other owners is going to buy it from me as soon as I'm done with it. So it isn't really costing a thing. It will just get resold over and over, until someone wants to keep it. The customer service is what I was bitching about, my money is as good as anyone elses. Pedders could have made an extra $150 and had a satisfied customer. In my book, Customer Service means everything, no matter how trivial it may be.
Our tool is hand made, at great cost to us. In fact we just significantly increased the strength of all the components to handle the additional stresses of the Camaro Steel jacket. We do not make a profit on the tool. We make the tools for the benefit of our dealers and only have a very limited supply.

We have tried lending customers some tools. This has proven to be significantly costly to us because of the lack of care some have done, like driving over a $500 cradle alignment tool, and 2 damaged old style diff bush tools. The issue is unknown to me as to how they did this. I have done over 30 or so with my diff tool and the only thing I have had to replace is the acme rod, which is a disposable component. We have not been able to find a higher grade 1/2 inch acme rod.

So sorry if our policy offends you. If we are going to tie up our capable and make 100 of these tools, then we are going to make it worth while financially. But we do not want to tie up our inventory capital on things like this. We also have a tool that can take a rear cradle bushing out in 30-45 seconds. But again, this is for our dealers only.

Then "fold" up the edge or knock it off.



Install tool.



Impact it.



VIOLA!! All three are gone.

Hears a Youtube video Mtcwby and I made showing tool in use - SLICK!
Thanks Cincy Speed - MUCH easier than my install!

Click pause and let load. Notice the video time as bushing is removed.

Darren and Steve, I'll find out which of you needs the tool first then I'll get it to you and then the other one can buy it from them. I'll be talkin to each of you tomorrow. I'll be sending good pics and instructions with it. Also I'm including one of the bushings I took out to make it easier to see what needs to be folded back for the tool to fit properly. I've got a feeling the tool will be making alot of travels in the future, for all of us DIYers.
Getting the car on jackstands, the exhaust off, and driveline off is what takes the longest on this job. After that the bushings are fairly easy.

So why do you need to make that notch first? Would seem to me you could have the female (cup) part of the tool fit over the car part and pull the male part of the tool into it? Would save you from possibly knicking the car part and having to debur?
Very cool vid btw!!!
Cheers

Only the rear bushing has enough exposed area to do this. Both of the front bushings leave 1/2 of the removal tool without a push point.... which would cause the tool to slide over the side and jam up. Instead, the tool is pushing off 3 points to remove the front bushings. The rear could be done without notching IF a separate tool was made without the welded area inside the cup. Possibly the kit could just come with 2 different cups? ....... would increase the price though just to save one notch cut.

See pictures on post #21 and video on post #56

This appears to be THE Tool for DIY guys, and a great one at that!

Ah I think I see what you are talking about. In the video it looked like the static end of the tool is a socket or cup that goes around/over the diff. housing. In looking at the pic and your reply I think I see what you are saying now.

I have a G8 and our bushings aren't flanged.

That being said, I did mine with a piece of all-thread and nuts from Lowes, a piece of exhaust adapter from Advance Auto, a large piece of steel from the parts bin, and some large washers from True Value.

It is easier to do with the diff on the floor or on the bench.

The Camaro comes out quite a biut harder than the G8 due to the steel jacket on the Camasro vs the aluminum jacket on the G8. We revamped our puller to handle the stresses of the Camaro better

FYI: RS-SS2 was able to upgrade his LPE650 to the Pfadt Poly Bushings in 3 hours using Cincy Speeds tool repurchased from Mtcwby. He does however have a really nice new lift which helps considerably. The other big factor is how your exhaust comes off (CATS to tail pipe whole or sectional). Best thing is "RS" has another buyer lined up for the tool already, setup by Mtcwby.

Thanks again to both Pfadt and Cincy Speed for the great customer service and being soooo professional.
..... ready for high HP!

Glad to have been able to help.

Now if we could quit having all this snow dump on us here in Cincinnati, I would be able to ship out two more tools.
