So this can't be use on a civic at all or you prefer to use a wrench/crescent? I not only work on civic so i will get it just in case.
Or use crows feet which work even better. But open the end wrench has never failed.

any affordable cordless impact wrenches?
i looked up harbor freights - terrible couldnt take wheel lugs off
no way man. Not for impact wrenches lol.

If you're going to use it for work n your garage use, I say invest in a good one. If just for your garage use, I mid range piece will work fine.

Good shit I'd go with Milwaukee 1/2" cordless impact wrench. I had a Makita 1/2" impact wrench. Shit was bad fucken ass! Lasted a good while til the batteries didn't charge anymore.

a good impact wrench would be from craftsman. They come with brushes but they hold pretty good.

another option but first a question to you is, does it need to be a good 1/2" ?
If it's to disassemble engines and removes screws, bolts n nuts from your car, a good little impact driver will do the trick. Dewalt is good shit. Milwaukee also. I have both of them and the power is very impressive.

The one I use at work is a 3/8" dewalt 20v with 4ah batteries. Tried the 2ah battery, but it just doesnt give enough punch for a 3/8" set-up. Maybe the 1/2" might work with the 20v2ah battery, but its heavier. Since I have to wrench for work, 10 hr shift, I try to run the lightest tools I can for the work.

I suggest looking into getting yourself a good air compressor (if you do not have one) and getting a 1/2" air impact then. I have a 1/2" ingersol rand impact wrench and that sucker helps me with all of that.

I have a snap on 3/8 electric impact at work and its mean! it takes wheels off cars, but failed at taking the crank pulley bolt off my y8, but the battery wasnt at full charge. I have a matco 3/8 electric impact that i use at home, it was replaced by the snap-on gun for work duty. I sent the batteries out to be rebuilt a few months ago and its like a new gun.

I'll get a pic of my garage so you can see how I have all of the misc. I had laying around everywhere!
A simple shelf of 2x3 or 2x4 will help a bunch!

Ive been using harbor freight impact for the lest decade. cost me about 60 bucks I think, will take axle nuts crank pulley bolts and lug nuts off with ease.
ohh and ever since I've owned it Ive never lubricated it.
