I've used hf 3/8" tq-wrench on all my cars for 5 years now - no issues - fine for occasional use. I did get the tektron 250lb/ft one from amazon for wheel nuts and bigger jobs ....

I use snap-on, but I had to sell one of the kids into slavery to buy them

I'm sure it is (I think snap-on tools are great, and I have a few, but they're crazy expensive) but that's not what I was pointing to... The email I got was for a tool cabinet (11 drawer) for around $650.00 they were comparing it to a Snap-On unit that's very similar (size, 11 drawers, 16 guage steel, etc...) The Snap-On unit has a price of $4500.00 or thereabout...

I'm sure M3driver has that too and its the best thing ever invented, while the HF one has rusted into dust after about 3 days

Was at a friend's house tonight. His 959 comes with a torque wrench designed solely for the 959. Only one made per car.

The torque wrench above looks like a Stahlwille.

@ahsai - What model number and overall length is your 5-75 ft-lb Snap-On torque wrench? I have a 5-100 ft-lb CTECH (Techangle) and its 19". It barely works for suspension work but I have to use torque adapters. A tool a few inches shorter would work better.

Just keep an eye on ebay for a new one, usually 30% cheaper than buying it directly from snapon.

You will also need an inlb and a split beam 250 ftlb for suspension stuff. Those can be precision instrument.
