Snap-on Must Have Tool: Low Profile Pitman Arm Puller for GM Pickups
Rough duty for contractor pickups requires attention to keep the steering system in top shape. It only takes a few jobs to pay for a specialty tool like this new time saver by Snap-On.
KENOSHA, Wis. – December 21, 2011 – The Snap-on Low Profile Pitman Arm Puller (YA6880) is the perfect solution when you need to reach confined areas on GM vehicles to service the pitman arm.
“The Snap-on Low Profile Pitman Arm Puller is a ‘must have’ for every technician who services General Motors trucks and SUVs,” said Mark Knapp, product manager for Snap-on. “The YA6880 is specifically designed to remove GM pitman arms found on most GM trucks and SUVs manufactured between 1988 and 2000. It also fits GM trucks and SUVs built since 2001 with a pitman arm attached to the steering gear box.”
Because the design allows the technician to remove the arm off the steering gear box without altering the box’s position, the Snap-on Low Profile Pitman Arm Puller (YA6880) is a substantial time saver. Manufactured with forged Chromoly steel for strength and durability, the YA6880 fits in the confined space on most GM 1988-2000 C & K chassis trucks and SUVs.
