05 F 250 front axle snap ring tool

I broke 2 snap ring plier on this thing can anyone tell me the make and model of snap ring pliers used to remove the snap ring off axle in hub ? I have some others but too beefy won't move in there. They need to be long but strong. I've heard Snap On Item: SRPC9000A works but I don't know of any Snap On guys around here and I need to get this thing done. Any ideas ? Thanks.

I went through this 2 months ago. Those snap rings are a nightmare. I looked up snap-on, and found a mobile tool truck a few miles from me. If they aren't busy they might even come to your location. Thank goodness for these snap ring pliers.

I just did my complete front end on my 05'. I will have to get to work and try to see a number on my pliers. I actually had to take my snap-on set remove the rubber on the handles heat them and bent the handles straight to ge enough pull. Until I figured that out I broke a few $40 sets of lisle pliers and had many choice words. It took longer messing around with the first snap ring than it did to press out and in the ball joints and swap the bearing and seal.

I dad a nice old KD set used for years on some pretty heavy stuff, snapped the tips twice. Snap On ? I live ina very rural area, but every post I read comes back to them. Maybe M-Chan will chime in he does these every day !

I went through the same thing when I changed the hub/bearing assy on my 08'. Once I did get the snap rings off, I took a grinder and ground off the flat ends to a slant (l=/) to where I could use a pair of regular lock ring pliers to install the new ones. Worked well, and will come off next time easier also, Dennis.

Unfortunately the numbers on my snap ring pliers are worn off. I did buy them from the snap on truck but over the years the part number is gone.

the photo to give size?

I bought some piston ring pliers from NAPA and ground the tip to the shape I wanted.

OK I went to a large truck parts store and they had these

KTI-55123 .090 they do external and internal, feel heavy in hand and must be hardened steel, because the didn't even flex and they have extended tips so they don't even touch the axle or hub. $17.99 on e-bay, I paid $25.00 at the truck parts store and thats at least half of what the Snap On ones cost of which I heard can break from a few guys on here. Hope this helps someone on here that runs into a brick wall like I did.

I found the number on the pliers it is srpc7000 but as mentioned I removed the grips heated and straightened the handles to get them to work well. Where the very end of the handle towards your wrist if you are holding them touch you need just a little more pull. Then they worked great. If they had a set a little longer from pivot to tip and still just as narrow they would be the ones to get. I'm not good with the picture thing but these are 2 and1/16th from center of pivot to tip
