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.

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.

Used a universal tool, and it bent under the pressure when trying to load the new torsion keys back into an 05 Silverado. This tool worked effortlessly and was DEFINITELY worth the money. Super glad with the product.

Tool arrived in great condition and to my surprise it was made in American, maybe I lucked out on this one. This tool is specifically designed to remove and install the torsion bar suspension on my specific year model truck. Caution! One should always be sure to get the correct tool for the job and your specific application. This type of suspension if not removed correctly will and can cause sever injury to you. By all means do this as specified by the manufacture.

Tool worked perfectly. Don't listen to people who say there is too much load to safely use this tool. I pulled the torsion bars from my 2003 2500HD with over 200K miles - no problem. The real problem was getting the keys unstuck from the bars. For that, I had to remove the entire crossmember with bars and keys attached. Then, I beat them out with a sledgehammer and a large punch. Everything went back together easily.

This tool was hard to find. No-one at the parts stores knew what it was. So glad it was available online at Amazon. Can't believe something so small costs so much though. Oh well we have it now for our needs.

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.

Do not try to take the tension bar off without this. You could die. This tool works great. We were in the middle of replacing the bushings on my Blazer and we discovered we needed this tool. I went to Amazon and had it in 2 days with my Prime account. Could not be happier.
