    Depends on the quality you want. If you want :worthy: Snap On (vey nice and expensive, their tools come with a lifetime or a longterm warranty), <_< Krapsmen aka Craftsmen (decent quality and price, same warranty as above, which u will be using alot because there sockets break all the time), or generic (cheap price and quality). As for a site, do a google/yahoo search.

    Very true... Snap-On and Mac are very good and come with lifetime warranty. BUT, they are very hard to come by if you do actually BREAK one of their tools, because you have to wait for the guy in the truck to appear somewhere, and they only go once a week to mechanics' shops in case you know a mechanic. I broke some Mac ratchets i had and had a VERY tough time finding one of the truck guys. Craftsman, on the other hand, is located in a store that you can go to ANYTIME your tools break. Choose whichever you want, i still prefer Mac or Snap-On shit but just something to think about

    If you are looking for some decent quality stuff try your local parts store. You won't have to pay shipping and you have a place to bring it back to if it fucks up.

    I always used craftsman shit from the home depot, no problems yet. That is with over 10 swaps under the belt. You can rent a hoist from a local shop if you want. They should run about 60 for a day.

    Harbor freight tools has 750lb engine stand perfect for honda engines for $40 and $5 shipping, if you order somthin else so your total come out to over $50 then shipping is free on your whole order.

    http://www.harborfreight.com/

    and i also buy from Northern tools, but they dont got alot of automotive stuff, more of the yearda and garden type things.

    Harbor freight is the best for bigger tools like stands and hoists.

    Mikita (sp?) or another weird named company makes a lot of Craftsman stuff, but I'm pretty sure they don't sell anywhere but Sears. I did a search and couldn't find a single other place that sold Craftsman.
