I am looking for a turned down socket as well, can you include PayPal info? Thanks.
Don't be afraid to try it the other way removing the upper arm assembly. It is an extra 4 bolts on top and pinch bolt on the upper ball joint.
I did mine solo and I did it with out the thin wall socket. Not bad at all.

Agreed, the turned down socket is convenient, but it isn't too much extra effort to remove the upper suspension assembly! Also, when you are reassembling you can slide those 4 bolts as inward as possible for a bit of extra negative camber.

Finally got car aligned.

Toe was WAY out of spec, as expected. Chewed through rears in ~7k miles :(
I did this myself a few years ago. I figured I got the tie rods pretty much the same length on my Mr2 when replacing them and ended up roasting a set of rear tires in one season.

everything but camber was able to get in spec in the front, so i don't know that a front end alignment kit is needed for street driving.
