Help-Wrench for coilovers

Hey guys anyone know where I can get a wrench for JIC Coilovers? Are they specific for each branch or can some generic one work from another brand? I bought a set of used JIC Coilovers and old owner lost the wrench =P

I've purchased a pair of Tein spanner wrenches from Garage 5 before, much cheaper than JIC by the way. I'd imagine any local coilover reseller should be able to order you a set. Try contacting the RS sponsors first.

When I bought mine, they were around $30 for a pair but I do believe they are still around that price. These were the older style as Tein has a nicer looking unit out now. I do remember that JIC wrenches were around $80. If you can find a compatible one at a hardware store those should work too.

$30 sounds about right.

Waste of money, use an old 3/8 extension and a mallet, thousand time's quicker.
