Great suggestion! Just don't have the money as I spent like $100 for these tools and I had that racquet on-hand before and am low on money now, unless I ask dad to buy me a torque wrench, lol . Any other suggestions?

Re: lug nuts and breaker bar

I got my torque wrench from HF for around 14 dollars. I broke it this winter but I just have to take it back to swap it out for a new one.

I have two HF breaker bars one 3/8 and one 1/2 and I've broken the 3/8 once. I use a piece of 1" EMT about 5ft long as my cheater bar. That was before I got a 1/2" electric impact.
