Torque Wrench for Rear Wheel

Hey All, what brand/model torque wrench are you using for the rear wheel? Craftsman has a nice torque wrench but I don't think it will fit between the bolt and the exhaust pipe.

Gary,

According to Car & Driver Magazine the torques wrenches sold by Harbor Freight are amazingly accurate.

When they are on sale and if you have a coupon the are surprisingly cheap.

You may need a "Crows Foot" to get at the nut on the back axle with the OEM muffler. I have an after market muffler so I was able to use a regular socket.

Good Luck,

Kenny G
