Aftermarket & OEM Tools
Need some automotive tools? Yeah, we've got those. Are you changing your harmonic balancer and need a 3-bolt pulley holder? If so, you've come to the right place. Have you found yourself trying to work on your control arms without a ball joint tool? Well, you can get that on our website. How about a UV coolant leak detector? That's something any mechanic should have in their arsenal, and there's no reason not to buy that right here, right now. It's important to have the right tool for the job. Otherwise, you'll find yourself with a car half-torn apart that you can't keep working on until you get it. That could mean a trip to several auto parts stores before getting exactly what you are looking for. And what if the car you have torn apart is your daily driver? That is an inconvenience on top of a problem wrapped in some frustration and sprinkled with curse words. Clearly, the only way to prevent this is to make sure you are prepared for the job, and the road, ahead.
Let's face it; cars used to be easier to work on... much easier. In fact, engineers for the largest automotive manufacturers made it a point to provide car owners with a machine that was as easy as possible to perform service on. It was actually satisfying for a driver to be able to replace a belt if the car broke down, or perform an oil change in an afternoon. Nowadays, these engines are so advanced that only a small percentage of drivers will even attempt regular service themselves; let alone use a CV joint boot installation tool, stretch belt tool (for A/C compressors), or alignment camber adjuster on their own.
You can never have enough tools in your garage (unless your garage is attached to a Pep Boys or Jiffy Lube). And with every new job you have to do on your car, you have an excuse to get another tool. Whether its an ignition coil puller, hall effect magnet indicator, or valve spring compressor, Car Parts Discount has what you need to get work started on the right path. Save time and save money with the right tools.
