  3. Impact Wrench Advice

    New Member Introductions
    I bought an electric impact wrench and was wondering when it is appropriate to use it and when some muscle on a standard ratchet might be a better choice. My new axle came today for my 03 1.8T. If I can get a straight line to the flange bolts should I go impact?
