It should.

Its the fancy lightech ones im afraid. Ill just keep on removing the caliper then. I guess ill be pretty quick anyway Within a couple of years xD

After watching the video, to me it looks like those of us who use the Pitbull tire wedge would not find this new tool useful. The tire wedge keeps the wheel at the correct height to slide in and out, and it appears in the video that this new tool requires the wheel to be dropped after the axle is removed to clear the rear caliper. That would defeat the purpose of using the tire wedge. I use captive spacers and now the tire wedge, and remove the rear caliper, every time I replace the rear tire. It's a pain removing the rear caliper, but it cuts down on paint loss maneuvering the rear wheel out and back.

That's a really cool tool ... almost wish I needed one!

It only drops because I do not have anything supporting the wheel. It does not need to do so.

That's odd, there should be a shipping option...give me a little bit.

The new ones are a lot different =). That said, the current ones will not be staying at $50 for much longer. I haven't changed the price in 5 years and my costs have risen quite a bit.

Well glad I got them just in time! If I crash and break them, I won't feel too bad given the price.

Any idea on how much more they'll be? I'll probably be purchasing a set soon-ish.

$60 for the set, plus shipping.

New packaging finally arrived for the axle tools and I made it generic enough that I can use it for other/future products.

Off-topic a bit but just wondering...do you do most of the work on your products yourself? i.e. design work, manufacturing, testing, etc.?

I am assuming they fit an '05? If so I'll probably pick one up!
