Folks -

People have been asking me for the special tools that are needed to perform the brake work. So, I have been working today on supplying the special tool bits needed to do a four wheel brake job.

First, I would like to get a clear consensus as to the special bits needed: I believe a 5mm triple square, a 16mm triple square, a T50 torx bit, and a 6mm hex head? Any others that are tough to find? These would be bits designed for a 3/8" drive socket wrench. Would the 6mm hex be needed or not important?

The bits are all male end? Correct?

Also, does our V6 and V8 oil drain plug use a 16mm triple square with tamper proof pin in the middle? That would provide a means to offer a dual use bit, if so. The 16mm tri-square is available both ways.

Finally, these would be good quality tools offered by an American company in the automotive tool business. I could get the bits wholesale bulk and offer only these needed ones. The cost would be very reasonable, especially with a brake kit attached... :wave:

Please let's get some feedback and then I can finalize numbers and see how this makes sense. I am happy to be of service, you know! \:D/

Regards,

Geoff

Count me in too! - Geoff I just emailed you for a quote on the full kit for front and rear on my 04 V6. If you have the tools available soon I would definitely add those on to the ticket.
