This guy has these compressors listed on eBay all the time. Wish I would have bought it to do my springs. I bought one from NAPA and had to modify it to work. What a cluster you know what!

I bought the one off e-bay and it was so easy to remove and install the front springs. With this design I had no worries with the spring releasing from the tool.

I think I'm going to buy one anyway. I was so nervous using the one with hooks.

Just made one Thursday. Not quite sure how it works but will figure it out when time comes.

Have you guys thought about this route...

I just pulled my springs this week and was able to borrow a coil spring compressor from Autozone for free...I also checked with Pep Boys and Oreilly and they both loan for free.
