A torque wrench should never be used to break nuts or bolts loose that are already tightened.The shock that is imposed on the mechanism when the bolt.nut is broken loose will degrade its use as a torque measureing device.That info is pretty much auto shop 101.

Yep. And always store it a -0-

Also a side note....the new lithium batterys don't loose charge like others. I've had them hold full charge for months.

2nd side note......you can jack on the axle by the u bolts on a leaf spring axle, just try to stay as close to the hub as you can. While its best to use the frame on a torsion axle.

Guys this is a cheap HF torque wrench that lives in my toolbox on my truck just for changing flats or if I ever have to remove a tire and retorque the nuts.....it is not something I would ever use to build an engine....but in the world of not a lot of space to carry my entire tool box it will do fine if I change a tire every 2-3 years....

Don't need no torque wrench to change a flat...impact it off and on and get moving. Check torque at a later date when it's safe.....

X2.

Also, if you used that tq wrench to remove the lugs, I wouldn't trust the tq anyways..

Trailer Aid has the same type ramp for under $50 on Amazon. Make sure you get the TALLER one. It's worked for me on 4 occasions. Super simple and much less dangerous than a jack. IMHO...and personal experience.
