I prefer to think of it as "converting it to 3/8" drive." Where's your sense of adventure? I managed to drop an injector spacer under the valley of the blower. Couldn't wait another week for one plus machining. Couldn't use the hoist because the car is too low to get the legs under it. Had to hulk it out of the way and fish around for the spacer. Plus with a socket, if you've got one of those articulated magnet tools you can get things out of pretty tight spaces. They're a huge help.
