    So in the past year I have done so many front end and suspension jobs its ridiculous and there were so many times when I really wished that I had a set of air tools and a good air compressor. Well I finally did it I went out and got a Craftsman professional 27 gallon Air compressor I also bought there professional 1/2 inch & 3/8s impact guns there professional 3/8s air ratchet and an impact hammer. So I think now that I have everything I need to make suspension work an easy job I will probably never have the opportunity to do another one again.That will be my luck. I do like working on cars and would love to get some experience installing some lifts now. Most of my work so far has been replacing failed components. Anyway I was just really excited about my new purchase and wanted to share it with someone else.

    Nice ! i have been kicking around the same idea lately. air tools would save so much time and effort compared to using hand tools. Congrats on the purchase

    Have you ever tried to change your own sprockets and chain? Well if you cut the chain off before breaking loose the nut on the drive sprocket and you didn't have impacts you were screwed cause the sprocket would just spin the motor. I did that once on my ninja and ended up needing a friend to bring over his impact and compressor. What a pain!!!

    nice work. an air compresser comes in handy for soooo many things. that plus the right air tools makes it even better. solid investment. you'll wonder why you didnt already have one. they are awesome!
