man i dont use torque wrencchs to often so i bought a cheap one from like auto zone or some were like dat and it works just fine
lmfaoooo I did that also and my boy ed took it and threw it in the trash right afterwards..

Go to sears and grab a Craftsman. 70 bucks or you can look around for the snap on.


the craftsman goes as low as 20 ft lbs but the snapon goes lower with is great for the smaller bolts...

You don't need a top dollar torque wrench, but I would also never suggest buying a "Harbor Freight" one either. Any Craftsman one would do. I'm pretty sure my dad has a Digi Snap-On somewhere in his garage, and I plan on taking it for personal use. He doesn't build anything anymore anyways that need torque specs.

Accuracy isn't as important as consistency.

yea, i was looking at the snap-on and wasn't sure about the +/-4 or 6%.

but since consistency is more important, this is going on my xmas list. :D

i need to re-torque a lot of my suspension parts, and all new parts that i'm putting on in january. i've used a mechanical torque wrench and was not at all happy with the way it worked.

I've got a snap-on torque wrench. The problem with craftsman is that they don't offer a single wrench with a wide enough range to be useful on a honda. It is something like 5-80ft-lbs. The snapon is 20-100 which covers nearly everything but the axle nuts.
