It's not a Nissan thing it's a poor worksmanship on the rebuild thing, and you know it. I figured something stupid like this would happen, but I didn't imagine it'd happen so soon. Never trust a Mexican in Texas to do a good job with a car.

I need an impact gun....any thoughts on a good one under $100, needs 4-5 scfm, with enough torque to do anything (or almost anything) on a zj?

I was testing my IR air rachet and was highly disappointed. Didn't have nearly the power I thought it would, and yes my compressor is set up correctly.

Why did it need a rebuild in the first place? Also, I really don't think someone's ethnicity has anything to do with their ability to fix a car.

I think it's not high-demand enough. You can still buy a new one from a dealer, but it's around $500, IIRC
