Default Where to rent an impact gun in dfw

I am trying to install sway bars. I got the fronts on but the stupid bolt in the back is killing me. Where can I rent an impact gun to get it off. Thanks

I think you're referring to http://www.jackjunkies.com/index.html

... I drive by this place all the time. Looks to be a great idea that a car enthusiast made it into a business. Although probably not necessary for a sway bar install.

Well...if lacking the tools and space.

Anyone is welcome to use my stuff anytime...

I am available every sunday, except for next sunday. We are always doing something and I have a snap on MG725 with 800lbs of breaking force. I am just outside of midlothian.

Update: I got everything else done except the stabilizer bars. I called around and only one place in Plano has one for rent and it was 120+. I bought an electric one with "200 lbs of force". That didn't work. I am going to try to ask the people at Subaru to put it on a lift to just undo those bolts and pay like 10 or something. If not I will be going to my fathers in Fort Worth. Was hoping not to drive that far.

telling ya man, come to Wagaru's, its a good drive but you can enjoy the fact that we are always doing something to a Subaru. This weekend we are going to be oh grand prairie doing a clutch. Next weekend we are going to pull his motor on his outback.

I might have to do that in a coming weekend. Can't do it this Saturday because I have plans. But Sunday is usually the day I can do that.
