Corded Impact wrench

So I am getting a TF 2.5 coil lift with rancho 9000xl shocks for me jeep. I'm gonna do the install myself and was looking at getting a impact wrench. I don't have room for a huge air compressor so i was thinking about going with an electric. I did some research and could only find threads about cordless ones but those are usually like 400 bucks. I found this corded one and wasn't sure if it would be up to the task?

I have and use both the air and corded. The corded one although old and seen better days works rather well. You could also get an air wrench and use a CO2 tank to power it and then use the tank to air back up. Remember anytime you plan on wrenching several days of PB BLASTER prior to said wrenching will make your life a lot easier!!

I personally don't like using an impact wrench on the jeep unless I absolutely have to. A good torque wrench, breaker bar, and a nice 1/2 socket set takes care of most things.

That being said I have the exact Sears electric impact and it works great. I also have an air impact but I typically grab the electric one if I need one.

I use a battery operated one for rotating tires. I'd be lost without it.

Well It's more for taking the bolts off fast and quick put them back on. I obviously am still gonna torque them to the correct spec with a torque wrench

I bought a compressor and impact wrench over 30 years ago and I can say that it's the best tool investment that I've made. (I bought my 25 gallon compressor because I couldn't tighten the damper pulley bolt on a BMW without turning the engine-the brakes wouldn't hold it.) You don't necessarily need big compressor and today's compressors sit upright thus saving space. For installing nuts, you don't put the impact wrench on full power - use the torque wrench to do the final tightening. Taking nuts off with air tools is so much easier and when your dealing with rusted exhaust systems the air chisels (which are cheap) do it quickly. Need air in your tires...you've got it.
