I agree with the others, this is a well made, heavy duty tool, but the applications listings are completely inadequate
so I'll give the pin spacings for the non-GM tools.

7317A-4 Side A 1.090 in. (27.68 mm)
7317A-4 Side B 0.928 in. (23.75 mm)
7317A-5 1.250 in. (31.75 mm) this last one fit the 2003 Volvo S40 I was working on, equivalent to
Volvo tool # 999 5782 # 9995782

Just to mention, the center shaft is a nicely made, generic 5 1/4 in. long, chrome, 3/8 drive, ratchet extension,
so you get a bonus tool for your ratchet set.

This is the best disc brake kit you can get your hands on. I've been using a co-workers for a while before I invested in my own and this covers all the foreign jobs and the american jobs. This is by far the quickest and easiest to do disc brakes. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

It's a little awkward to use, but it does the job effectively. OTC makes some questionable quality tools. Many of them are made in Taiwan or China, this one probably no exception. However a lot of their stuff is still pretty good quality. Many of their specialty tools, like this one, are sold to tool companies like MAC and Matco, where they just rebrand it, and sell as their own.

I like this set. It took me a few tries to figure out how to use it properly. What makes it awkward is, while you are rotating the T-handle to retract the caliper piston, you must also turn your ratchet attached to the chrome extension. You have to do this or the disc that contacts and engages with the caliper pistion will slip off. So what I do is turn the T-handle a bit, then turn the ratchet a bit, until it feels tight again. Then turn the T-handle some more. Repeat until the piston has been fully retracted.

So yeah it's a bit tedious getting used to the tool, but once you do, it works great. The case is nice. The quality of the tool is fine. I really have no regrets buying this.

Changed my brake pads no problem. Worked like a charm. Thanks. Took me about 4 hours because I'm really slow. Had to rely on instructions from the internet but was a real simple job. But couldn't have done it without this thing I don't think. Saved me a lot of money.

It has everything you need for changing brake pads except a big wrench and brake pads, I suppose.

Oh yeah, you'll need a jack to jack up the car and some jack stands and a screw driver (big) according to the directions on the internet for a 2009 Toyota Corolla. If you do a search on google change brake pads for 2009 Toyota Corolla you'll see the video somewhere. I think it depends on the car how easy it is though. 2009 Corolla pretty much a piece of cake.

Just changed brake pads on a 1998 Toyota Camry, also (Oct 5, 2013). Worked really well for that too. Took me just as long as for the Corolla, about. I really recommend this kit, though, as works really well. I got pads from Toyota, and looks like the disks are fine so just changed the pads. Just got the car state inspected and it passed (the old pads were pretty thin so good I put in new ones.

I bought this to do rear disc brakes on a newer Mustang. Worked like a champ and brake job would have been impossible without it. The only problem I see is friends realizing that it has the proper adapters for every car and wanting me to "help" them on their brakes.

I needed a wind-back caliper tool on short notice so I bought this at a local store. Unfortunately, I paid a lot more than I would have if I had bought it here on Amazon!

The tool itself is rock-solid. Nothing flaky or whimsy about the cast and milled steel pieces. This tool will likely last a lifetime in all but the busiest shops.

The case is durable heavy plastic. I kinda wish it was a little less unassuming, though as it might be easy to forget what's inside it if it sits on a shelf in a home-owner's basement or garage. I suppose some white duct tape and a marker pen will serve to label it.

Mine had simple instructions glued to the inside of the cover. I'd give those a "A+" for being conveniently located (no piece of paper to get lost) and very well-written (no broken english from poor translation), though a 'B-' for the not-so-clear illustration.

Putting it to use was simple and quick. Almost felt ant-climactic how well the tool did the job. Just like that it wound my brake pistons right back in. Nothing stuck, slipped, broke, whatever. It just worked. And that is how it should be.

Purchased the item after considering all other possibilities (ie renting the tool); this is by far more advantageous, but I worried about the quality of the product.
Turned out my worries were unfounded; the item arrived quick and in perfect order. I've used it almost immediately, and it's just a great tool that cut my working time by a large margin: good quality product, decent instructions, can be used on many vehicles.
Highly recommended!
