If you have replaced the shoes on the rear of a 355 you know that annoying spring clamp can be a PITA to get in and out with the tools you have.

Well this little gem should make things easy now









Here is the link:

I'm going to order one very soon

@Jesse

I just found it while trying to update my Amazon list for the holidays.......best way to ensure you won't get something useless.

I have new shoes and wheel cylinders in the garage that need to be installed.

I will do a Review with it once I do the job

I wish I would have seen that when I did mine a couple years ago. I found about it about a week later.

I've linked to that took several times in the brakes threads, but nobody posted up saying if they have used it when they did their job.

It sure looks like that third hand we need.

That's the same way I did mine last time........but I did not enjoy the process

I'm at the point where I have the money to buy the "right" tools for the job...........I much prefer to work smarter, not harder these days.

Just curious, as I see that you have a 2009. Do you have the brake hardware configuration that requires the use of that tool? I have a 2011 and my drum brakes do not have that configuration. Sometime in production, that spring was eliminated. I suspect that it was started with the brake upgrade on 2009 models, but I'm not sure. Maybe that type of spring interfered with the ABS sensor installation.

Thanks Rich. I'm guessing that the reluctor wheel/ speed sensor installation had something to do with the change in configuration.
