Digital Torque Wrench?

I need a torque wrench to take care of some suspension mods on my truck + to do some general maintenance (installing a shift kit + servicing the trans)

How accurate is this one?

I will be working on some pretty delicate parts so i don't wanna eff anything up. I already have a 1/2 drive ratcheting breaker bar.

Thoughts anyone?

I generally do not recommend princess auto tools, and that device looks a little bulky and may be inconvenient when you're working in tight spaces.

In terms of digital torque wrenches though I've never had a problem with mine in the past three years. The torque angle function comes in handy building cylinder heads and it never lost calibration despite constant use.

When it comes to digital torque wrenches,just spend the money and get a Snap-on.

Get the Canadian Tire version. It was the same price. I have a Craftsman Pro version of that.. I use it to see how far my torque wrenches are off by.

Good to have around the shop.

I sent it in for calibration after three years and was told it wasn't required.
