Default need snap ring pliers for 97 ds rear axle

Could they have made this any harder? Trying to change rear axle bearings on a 97 DS cart.

After pulling the drum, the f bombs started

So far have tried the cheap harbor freight snap on pliers, the decent Channel lock brand, but the 90 degree blades are not long enough.

Tonight I went to autozone and they had a set of what they "heavy duty OEM", so I bought them, and will try them tomorrow.

Meanwhile, can someone recommend a 90 degree heavy duty snap ring plier that they have actually used on a club car axle?

Dont try the ones with removable heads. They will piss you off. I use a pair of "blue point" I bought off eBay. They look old.

Snap-on makes a good pair. That's what I use.

I will check out snap on. By the way bluepoint is tied in with snap on. I rebuild a lot of tool batteries for snap on dealers, and they send in a lot of bluepoint batteries.

If David uses snap on pliers, then I don't need to look any farther

Thanks guys

FYI even with good pliers it's still a pain.

Diddo on Snapon. The trick is to close one eye and push your tongue against the opposite cheek to get the ring off.
