If you look at step 15 it it the thing on the ratchet. It is supposed to be used when you remove the flange nut from the stabilizer link.

This is what one normally looks like:
.

I used a ratcheting combo wrench instead and it worked great.



You could probably get by with a box end wrench too, but it will be slow going.

thanks for the info.

I managed without a crows foot without a problem. I have a neat ratchet that's one of those circular ones... wish I had a pick. But on a regular wrench, you know one is a circle and one is the crescent. It's a ratchet that is like the circle. It worked perfectly.

Thanks for the info tho! Know i know what a crows foot is.
