Does anyone know where I can buy a shock collar wrench for the spec Bilstein/Eibach setup?

I have two of them. Can't get rid of them. They are permanently attached to the ends of my arms. [Wink]

Really if you need a wrench you havent been cleaning up after the off track incidents [Big Grin]

If there is too much spring tension, have someone stand on the wheel and take the pressure off the spring, also make sure both sides of the car are in the air IF the sway bar is hooked up

Buttonwillow dust. Yeeccchhhh.

Yeah, I don't think my wife or kids would feel safe standing on the wheel. I think I'll check out the Advanced site. Thanks all.

FWIW, I hit the tops of all my collars with a wire brush after every race weekend to clean out the sand and then spray some WD40 down into the threads so they can be easily turned if needed.

Hmmm. Shock collar wrench ... Now would this be used to keep a SM'r from wandering too far away from his garage? And do you have to put the little white flags in the yard to mark the buried wire?

It's the kind that when you are following him into turn 1 you just push the button and he moves over and lets you by while he's trying to gather himself back together.

Charlie:
Please tell me where I can get one of those so I can buy one for a couple of ITA drivers I often get a chance to follow as they park it in various turns! I wonder if they come in colors to match thier cars?
