Default TRE puller

A puller is much more elegant than a fork and much less likely to result in mistakes. As with woodworking, processes resulting in loud noises (hammering in this case) rarely produce the best results...

Yeah, the puller worked like a champ on that style. I never even considered that before, but it didn't take too much effort. I'm not a fan of the fork style, as they usually tear the boots. If you are replacing, that's not a huge issue, but not my favorite.

x4 on the puller thingy. When I didn't have the puller I just used a bigger hammer on the side of it combined with some penetrating fluid.

A bigger hammer and brass drift work well on CV axles as well instead of putting on the puller. put the drift right on the center of the axle. Don't hit too hard but a couple solid hits will loosen it enough it can be taken off by hand.

Yes thats it. I have the earlier model mentioned in the text. No adapters with mine either, none needed. I also have the pitman arm puller OTC #7314. Good for Hi Trac (IFS) idler arms.

I'll believe that when I see it. I have never had a TRE come apart without a lot of force. But the puller worked great when I did mine last year.

it works a treat dude. really does. I use this technique all the time, even when i use a puller too. It makes it to where you don't have to crank on it to get it out.

I like to put a smaller hammer on the TRE and hit it with a mini sledge. keeps me from having to aim too well.
