  • Front Axle / Front Suspension: 1965 Studebaker Cruiser A arm Spreader Tool

    Hi guys! Me and my old man are rebuilding the front end on the cruiser and need the Spreading tool for the upper A arm, however all the suppliers my father and i contacted didnt have it in stock and had it on back order. I was wondering if there was any alternate tools people used or any companies that had it in stock. If anybody fabricated a tool pictures would be appreciated!

    Several of the vendors have them for rent, I think. I own one, bought at a swap meet. Not sure if it is genuine Studebaker tool, or just a generic one, but it works. Check with Russ Ware at Studebakerparts.com

      TPpower go to Google type in Studebaker A arm speeder tool- images and see home made versions. I made one like the first photo and it worked a treat. Cheers Harryhawk

            The unit I have is virtually identical to that in Robert Kapteyn's post.

                Sounds like something an enterprising someone with a small mill might be able to make a profit on...
