Yeah you are right impact wrenches shouldn't be used on lugs. Some places use torque sticks to limit the torque on impact wrenches. I don't know how well this does or doesn't work. But frankly it doesn't take very long to do it right with a real torque wrench. Over torqued lugs can warp rotors, wreck your lugs/hubs, etc... Regardless, if the spec was 88 and you needed over 125 to get a lug off they did it wrong. Impact gun or not.
