Of course there are lazy people and there always will be. It sucks that people have to worry about it but that's why I send anyone I can to my buddy. I trust him with my Jeep and my life.

I think their tightening policy is star pattern with the impact, circle with the impact and then repeat with the torque wrench. Not entirely sure though.


Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

I saw these "Torque-stick" sockets at a local wrench night my buddy throws each week; I'm surprised more places don't use them, liability= passed to the tools

Happened to me in my 1973 FJ40 a few years back but I wasnt so lucky.... 70 mph down the highway...sheared all 6 lugs, threw us into the air as the tire went under the fender and then slamed us down on the drum!
Oh that sucked big time....only thing good that came out of that is the shop that did it fixed everthing without question

Actually I picked them up three hours after they were posted. It took over two hours to get there.
