Here's a hint: It's a suspension tool.

This kills me because I KNOW that tool! My brother has one and I have seen it used I am damn sure, I know that tool but can't for the life of me remember what it's for.

It's (first tool) used to install the nuts on the top of shocks?

No, but close enough. It's used to UNINSTALL the nut on the top of a shock - and by uninstall, I mean it breaks them off.

I grew up calling it a shock buster, but there's probably a more proper name for it. It's made by Lisle.

The idea is that it's easier and quicker to just break the shock stud off than it is to hold the stud and turn the nut off (especially on rust-belt cars).

Here's how it's used:



The next question is yours, Mr. Cobalt.....

Joe I always thought I knew tools pretty good but that one sure eluded me! How about a visual on the installer. I can't see it.

The installer (K-D #465) is used to keep the stud from spinning as you tighten the nut. I suppose you could just hold it with a Vise-Grip, or tighten the nut with an impact, but my Dad was always a big 'use the right tool for the job' kind of guy, so that has become thoroughly ingrained in me as well.



I'm not sure what the deal is with the threaded swivel end of the shock tool. I've never used that end. Maybe someone else here knows.

Joe, if you have a 'nuther one please go w/it- I have nada at the moment and don't want to hold things up. Next time I'll be prepared. Besides, that was being VERY generous giving it to me...

OK, next question (this might be too easy, but it should keep the ball rolling):

In the 1920's, there were several cars produced with "Knight" in their names, such as Stearns-Knight, Willys-Knight, R&V-Knight, etc. Besides the name, what did all the 'Knight' automobiles have in common?

Sleeve-valve engines. The Knight engine to be exact. Stearns Knight, Willys-Knight, etc. I believe Stutz used a version in the huge, ornate (No chrome- it was actual sterling silver!) Stutz Limo

You got it, Dave. They had Knight sleeve-valve engines.

Check out this Knight cutaway. It's a fascinating design. And it's a HEMI....lol


Next question is yours, Dave

P.S. @ Jester: You might be right too.

This thread has been so damn interesting! I have never seen that sleeve valve engine, don't remember ever seeing it at least, very interesting. And the stud buster, makes perfect sense but I was wrong, I have never seen it at least in use. Very interesting stuff Joe!
