Hi all, me again looking for some advice my project bike is a GT i drive 5 that I got a at right price as they said the BB was sieze and they could not remove it. sorted that now, with a PEDROS external socket and a snap on breaker bar :D this socket fits great and does the job well. Any way I want to sevice the pivots and its a 20 spline job I have seen the service guide and I need 2, is it worth buying the cheaper sockets or do I just bite the bullet and buy park tools a was looking at the bbt22 (think thats the one I need)

cheers Ryan

You don't have to go to the expense of park tools ones. They should only be done up tight enough to take up any play in the bearings so cheaper ones will be fine.
