Product Description

Product Description

The OTC 7822A is a rugged tool built for GM’s K-3500 series trucks with heavy-duty chassis and a larger torsion bar. It features a larger C-frame opening to accommodate beefier torsion bars. The tool holds the torsion bar while you make adjustments. It also works on 1988 to 2003 GMC and Chevrolet 1/2, 3/4, and 1-ton pickups; the S-10 Blazer and S-15 Jimmy, 4WD pickups with 4.3L V-6 engines; and 1991 to 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada.

From the Manufacturer

GM's K-35 series trucks with the heavy-duty chassis require heavy-duty tools to deal with the larger torsion bar. The larger C-frame opening on the 7822A accommodates the beefed-up torsion bar on these trucks holding it in place while you loosen or tighten the adjusting nut. Also works on 1988 and newer GMC and Chevrolet 1/2, 3/4 and 1-ton pickups; S-10 Blazers S-15 Jimmys 4WD pickups with 4.3L V-6 engines; and 1991 and newer Olds Bravada.

This is a extremely heavy duty tool. This is dealership quality at the cheapest price around. I had to replace my upper and lower arms in my avalanche. Now you need a good tool you trust your life with because if the tool breaks and the torsion bars get loose, you could get hurt or seriously injured up to death. I put my life on the line with this tool and I'm glad I did. HEAVY DUTY!!! Make sure you grease up the threads so YOU dont strip them out.

Pro's - Fits into place and makes the job of unloading the torsion bar tension in a safe manner. Made of good quality.

Con's - A steep price for this tool that most home mechanics may only use in one occasion.

I would not attempt doing front end work without the use of this tool. I am very happy with it.

To replace the torsion keys/bars, the right tool is a must! I tried using "c" clamps and another type of clamp/puller... 2 broken "c" clamps (yes two) and no results 3 hours later. I broke-down and ordered the $100 tool. Within an hour of receiving it, the job was done. Well worth the cost and wait.

Yup looked all over locally to rent this tool no luck. Bought this tool on amazon and leveled my truck in about an hour. Running a larger exhaust may take you a bit longer time. Recommend 100% get the right tool for the job and save your fingers.

Just like what is used at the dealership. Performs the job as required. It's just to bad you have to make a 100 dollar purchase for a one time use. Not the fault of this product or the seller though.

Worked just as expected. Price is high for a tool that you need for 20 minutes. Can always sell to recover some of the cost!

It does what you need it to do. I was able to put the leveling kit on my Avalanche fast and safely. Tool works great.

Bent after first use. I had to use a regular gear puller to complete the job. Returned item without any difficulty
