These are also useful on the 201/124/etc style rear-link arms. The newer kits your can buy from Meyle come with these type of bolts.

I've used these for the head bolts on VWs. If you go to sears and ask for a tripple square driver you'll get a deer in the headlights look, then say it's also called an XZN bit the counter jockey just gets more confused

I've had bad luck with those... The ones I had didn't fit right and striped the head out.. Got a snap on, and no more problems...

Snap-On, MAC, Proto, Easco, Williams, Indestro all make these for the US military, so if you can get a surplus set cheap, they will wear like...well, actually they WON'T wear, and that's the point.
