Automotive Tool Rentals from Rent-A-Tool

When you rent tools for your automotive project from Rent-A-Tool, you can choose from the following options based on availability:

Ball Joint Remover: Ball joints are the round bearings that connect the steering knuckles to the control arms in a vehicle. This tool helps you remove them easily.

Assorted Torque Wrenches: We offer a variety of sizes and types of torque wrenches to help you tighten fasteners like nuts and bolts. 

Coil Spring Compressors: Our high-quality coil spring compressors are a must when working on springs and struts for your suspension.
