The cone attachment that guides the bearing puller jaws could probably benefit from a steeper cone angle. What I mean by this, is that it's somewhat difficult to adjust the jaws when they're getting snug against the bearing, but not quite snug enough. Jiggling the jaws and tightening them against the cone worked, and it's only a small nitpick, and I'm not knocking any points off there.
What I _am_ knocking points off for is the company's claims to the origin of manufacture. Now, the Amazon product description doesn't state anywhere where the tools were made, so I wasn't exactly expecting them to be made in the USA. When I received the tools though, the packaging states MADE IN USA, and I was happy to see that! Then I looked a little closer, and on the molded tool box, it states Made in Taiwan. What the hell?
I've uploaded a picture to the item photo gallery, and you can see for yourself. It may be that the white cardboard shell was made in the US, and everything else was made in Taiwan, but it seems very misleading to me. I've seen other manufacturers doing this too, and it sucks. I don't care where a company makes their stuff, as long as it's clearly labeled, and they live up to that claim. When a company advertises it's product being made in the US, it had better damned well be made here. Anything else is just plain lying to the customer.
All said, I'm happy with the purchase of this set, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile bearing puller/slide hammer set. I used it to pull bearing races out of my motorcycle, and it worked beautifully!
***** FYI to complete the job you also need a front wheel hub drive bearing removal/install tool(kit). This presses out the bearing and allows you to press in the new bearing without ever removing the steering knuckle form the car. Or you could remove the entire knuckle and take it to a shop to have the old bearing pressed out/in.
