    WTB: Rear lower wheel carrier support bushing tool

    Anyone have one that would like to recover some costs and sell to me? I'm aware of the tools available and pricing. For knowledge sake, the MB tool will cost us about $270.00 from the Classic Center.

    Drew, not sure if this is accurate, but Naperville shows it for $136, free shipping with the forum promo code. At that price, for the factory tool, I'd jump on it:

    My maths indicate that $136 is actually dealer cost, so Naperville may not honor that price, but it's worth a try. Husker has it for $165. The price on this tool had been higher (over $200+ dealer cost) through about 2012, then it dropped considerably in mid-2013. It's gone up a little since then. The Classic center asking $260 is awfully high IMO. That's 2x dealer cost, 100% markup.

    I have this, the generic brand, but it worked just fine on my 092 - and if it's the same for the 036 you're more than welcome to it. I'm downtown though, but am currently commuting to Kennesaw if that's better.

    $136 is reasonable however the car budget is growing like the national debt and i'm too old to need this again. As always, your help is appreciated.
