    Thanks for hosting us Brandon; even with the rain it was a great time!

    I looked around a little and did find 3/8" hex sockets with a 1/2" drive. Nothing in stores but did see them online. I'm thinking of picking up one myself to have for that specific job. MSC has them here:

    And McMaster has a variety of different styles and lengths on their website. They range from $6-$20 for a single socket, but given how important it is for it to hold up (during torsion bar adjustments) I think it's worth it.

    I wonder if an impact socket would be preferable in this application? Aren't they supposed to be "tougher" than normal sockets? Thanks for the links, Nick... I'll be getting one of these for sure, though I will probably stick to a shorter one rather than a longer one.

    EDIT:

    I found this one on Amazon, it's from SnapOn/Williams:

    $14.80 with Prime shipping? Yes Please!

    Ooooh nice find. I agree, I'm all about the amazon prime. And Snap-On/Williams definitely has a good enough history for me to trust the tool. Think I'll pick one up myself as well.

    We can probably put something together. Is anyone else going to the Arsenio Hall show Friday night?

    I'm staying at Saratoga Springs near Downtown Disney. Let me know what you decide.
    Thanks,

    I didn't get to attend the Tech Session. However, I would like to get the torsion bars adjusted. They are sagging a little bit. I could be because it's been cool weather and the car was not used for 4 months.

    There were a couple of posts about buying a new "Impact Socket". If someone wants to bring their adjustment setup I'd be very glad to be the Guinea Pig to have their new socket tested.
    Thanks,
    Lenny

    Are you going to the show on Friday night? If not, do you want to? I have 2 extra tickets I can sell you for cheap.
