The title says it all. I have no doubt that information is on this site somewhere, and I've done some searching but haven't found it yet. Thank you guys...aj

Where you at? Your name implies Medford perhaps. I'm in Medford, Oregon and have the tools.

Oh, and to answer your question, I got the kit for my '99 at Eagle Mike. Recommend going with the torsion spring.

Nice of you to offer him the tools, but it is a long ride from Medford, Oklahoma to Medford, Oregon. Both are very close to the Trans-America Trail so it would be a fun ride.

medford2,
You should have been inquiring about the 'Best Doo-Hickey', instead of the cheapest!

Ya' get what ya' pay for. And ya' pay for what ya' get!
But Eagle Mike is of the Highest quality and 'cheap' to boot!

Did someone say "Cheap"????

Yep on Eagle Mfg. Mine was 40 bucks back in the tension spring days.

I'm a machinist by trade and this piece is NICE!!!
Both issues Kaw missed are addressed with Mike's unit.
The spring was only one. He also tightened up the tolerances
on shaft slop. This piece fits snug and doesn't rattle causing it undue stress.

Sounds like you have a line on getting the two non standard tools to do
the job. It's easier than it seems. Check youtube or here if ya get stuck.
There's already a buttload of info on this. Refine your search and a BUNCH
of threads will pop up.

With a gen 1 and it's age this is a very good thing to do.
A piece of the spring or slot (bolt carrier) can whiz around in there
like a demolition derby.

That came out wrong, Westman. What I meant is where can I get the best price on a quality kit. I think I already found 'ol Mike on Ebay.

Well, sorry I can't help out this time, but looks like you're on the right track for the Eagle Mike parts.
Cheers, Scott
