I've used it a number of times since then, tie rod ends, ball joint, almost anything with a taper - position the tool, torque it down, and then whack the side of the arm (not the tool) with a hammer to shock the joint, it'll pop loose.
I'll addaa picture of it next to another one for comparison of how anemic it seems in every way
It's important to note that you SHOULD NOT use an impact gun with the tool. It can damage the tool and void your warranty. OTC (a Bosch subsidiary) also recommends cleaning and lubricating the threads after each use. I actually broke the jaw pivot pin at the end where the bearing detent is located. I was still able to finish the job since the pivot pin was still long enough to extend all the way through the hinge. OTC's great customer service took care of me and replaced the tool free of charge.
Overall I'm very pleased with the tool, and OTC, and would buy more of their specialized tools in the future!

If you can find a tool like this specifically for your make (Honda, Toyota, etc.) then I would recommend that. However, this is still a great generic tool that I'm sure works on many cars.
