Air tools I do NOT have. Rent? Excuse to purchase? I love that! "You see, honey, it's cheaper for me to buy these air tools and do the job myself. And then, in the future, I'll have the air tools ..." Wait. That's not good. Then I'll ALWAYS be expected to do my auto repairs myself. I just talked myself into paying someone else. Thanks guys. -- Don John B wrote: > On 21 Sep 2006 08:03:13 -0700, don.schencknospaml.com wrote: > > > > I'm wondering ... okay, this his hokey ... but if I were to very > > carefully put a floor jack under the center of the rear axle and push > > up ... bend it straight?
