The 4 piece impact extension set from HF is $8. The 9 piece set at HF is currently $15, but you can get it for $10 with coupon most of the time. That's the set I'm using.

Just giving some options in case Harbor Freight happens to be closer than Sears.

I'll add these to the cart for when I have free points next time. HF has a set like this for around $9 I think.

I thought about getting some before, but wondered when I was ever need them. I already have the gearwrench flex head ratcheting wrenches and a Craftsman Universal joint set that rarely gets used.

I read that you would very rarely use these because the "wobble" causes some slop.

These are good to use if you need more reach than a universal joint and a slight angle to get a bolt in to place where there is an obstruction that prevents using a regular extension. They are designed so once you start ratcheting the extension locks in place. In other words, you could use a wobble extension as a regular extension but not the other way around.

Good to know. Thanks. I'll save them in my cart for later. I'm hoping to not have to wrench my car for a long time. Hoping my car just does its job and gets me from A to B without too much trouble.

Pardon for my ignorance - I have never used them before, so not sure if I understand the use well as compared to a Universal joint or flex head ratchet (which I have used before) with regular extensions - isn't the Universal joint & Flex head a better investment from usability perspective? Or did I miss it completely.... and they have completely different uses.

Thanks.

Different tools for different applications. A flex head ratchet is good if you have access to the bolt and need to get around an obstruction that blocks ratcheting. A universal joint works similarly but also has side to side movement.

An extension increases the ratchet reach, so that you can work on bolts you wouldn't be able to access otherwise. It also allows you to extend the ratchet out of the way of an obstruction that would prevent full access near the bolt. You could use a universal joint with a standard extension to basically make it work like a wobble extension, but the benefit of using a wobble extension is you can lock it in place to maintain a 90 degree angle which is important when using a torque wrench with an extension. If you change the angle, the torque will be off. Which is why a universal joint should never be used with a torque wrench.
