Spanners

sorry for sounding like a n00b

cheers

could do with both ratchets and spanners imho cos some places a ratchet just wont fit! and a spare set of knuckles would help last time i had my bumper off i required several plasters lol

Ratchet spanners are a tool created by god! Halfords Professional sets seem to have alot of the stuff you would need in, and there great quality at a nice price

Thats where ratchets with extension bars come into play.

If you can get the halfords pro 150pc spanner and ratchet set that was reduced from 200 to 100, get it. It is all you'll ever ned barring a few other tools.

EDIT: Now 130

ratchet spanners are excellent, got a halfords set myself. good quality tools, ebay is a good source for nearly new tools, and save a lot of money. i paid 33 pounds for my set of ratchet spanners instead of 80 although i think they have come down in price a lot now
