Thanks for the responses guys. That was very helpful. I learn something new everyday. I will go out and buy a Torque wrench ASAP. Any suggestion on brand?

Good torque wrenches are pricey, a good "Snap On" 1/2" drive 30 lb/ft -250 lb/ft will probably be in the range of $150-$250.

That's a loaded question... Ford or Chevy?

You get what you pay for, to a certain point. I used to swear by Craftsman, now I seem to be very happy with the Kobalt stuff.

I wouldn't trust the $9 one from HF, but I have one, and it reads the same as my Craftsman...

Some guys are gonna tell you the $350 Snap-On is the only way to go...

Man, that is a great price. I am thinking about jumping on that deal if it is truly Craftsman.....

You might need an account for Graingers.

You can check out as a guest. Just seems too good to be true. A quick google search returns much higher cost. I know Grainger has some good prices but that doesn't seem right...
