I have been looking for the place that made and sold Mitsu techs their custom tools for a while now.

Last time I posted, I was trying to find a balljoint splitter and finally got a generic tool which worked OK.

This time around, I was on the hunt for a balljoint boot installer. I called several dealerships, talked to my mitsu contacts, performance shops etc and no luck.

Then, buried on page 24 of a random google search, I found it.

click

So, I called them and they sell to the public as well, no need to be a dealer. Anywhos, figured this would help y'all...

Nice find, I remember ordering a tensioner tool from them a while back and they only had a generic web site.

This should probably be moved to the how to section. I some how ordered the actual mitsu tensioner tool for a t-belt job years ago, but I forget how I did it.

Very good info.

Do you own a FSM and use it to work on the car? I am guessing not. BUt, Your factory service manual aka FSM should mention special tool needed and list a part no. and a pic of it in the begining of the section and also when the particular assembly/disassembly is being done.
