    A spring compressor if you're doing it yourself, or speak with one of our sponsors for a no hassle quote

    Just becareful if your using a spring compressor ive seen those slip and the can do some serious damage to a person.

    If i were you i would look at getting a professional to do it. i.e. a garage. or at least a mechanic who knows what they are doing.

    I use ratchet straps to compress, quick, simple and never had a problem.

    Also if you are lowering on springs then a least get decent make ones, not cheap sh!te......

    I didnt even use anything to compress the spring for the backs, just jack the car up from the body then take wheels off, undo bottom shocker pin and pry down the axle and pull spring out. Simples! My front struts where rounded off at the top thanks to previous owner. So then out come the grinder!!!
