So my drivers seat broke in half so FML! I will hopefully have a new one soon... In other news I got my HIDs put in and they should help me see when I'm driving fast at night.

Dude my HIDs were a major problem on HRD. Due to the sharp cutoff I couldn't see jack shit when I was approaching a hill! But then on the way back I realized I was retarded and I put on my brights. Laughing

Pointing a bright light in someone's eye when they're traveling the opposite direction as you a few feet away doesn't seem very safe for yourself Razz

Well the H4 is dual filiment. I have only low beams with my HID kit. You can get a HI/LOW kit but its more $$$. It uses an electro magnet to pivot the bulb up.

For rec purposes yes they are good. U will learn alot of useful things. For being a mechanic they don't teach you very much. They don't like the use of air tools which is how money is made. Just keep a open mind.

lol well they arent supposed to be used for tuner lugs, or any type of locking nut, it could crack the socket, it could be used to take off a locking lug, but never to install a locking lug, that should be accomplished with a torque wrench

U can use them on wheels but other than that it's kinda disliked alittle. Phils lugs are kinda fragile so a long bar and a plastic coated socket should be used to break them loose. Then spin off by hand. Tuner lugs can use a impact on and off. That's how they were made.

are the tuner sockets sidewall thick enough to withstand the torque?

The splinedrives I have def aren't. The Muteki socket is strong though.
