These are the worst set of spring compressors I've ever used. They take up way to much space on the outside of the spring. Because the force is not centered over the screw or balanced, the spring clamps and slider bind up on the screw making it very difficult to get this thing back off of the springs. I used them to compress some 620 LB springs and the spring brackets bent as did the large screw itself. I had to pound the thing apart with a hammer.

I have a 89 honda accord and these are a "MUST HAVE"! I have used a number of other strut compressors and these are the best in my opinion. Unless you have a Branick wall mounted unit. Aside from the extra few minutes it takes to bolt up the U bolt its is one of the safest units I have come accross.

This is THE compressor tool for compressing a light coil spring with a shock absorber inside. No other tool I tried allows for the tight clearance between the spring and the shock absorber. With the entire assembly removed from the vehicle and the lower fork chucked firmly in a vise, this tool easily and safely compresses the coil so that the shock can be removed and replaced. Don't be fooled; this isn't for a truck coil! LOL. But it works like a champ on these little rice burner springs. I'd bet this would be a great tool for a bike mono shock spring too.

I used the product for the first time yesterday and was very pleased with its performance. I do have one minor observation that may help the manufacturer and other users. The instructions specify using a 1" socket with an air powered drill. So I purchased a 1" socket and it does not fit. Too small by as much as 1/16". So maybe the correct size socket should be included with the product. Having used an adjustable wrench I can assure you that a power assist to compress the spring is very important.

Good for the DIY kinda person. Took a while to put it all together and compress the spring wish it was as easy as taking it off. Cant complain for the price tho. It certainly did do the job for replacing springs on my 08 civic.

Purchased this to compress some OME 885's. NO WAY! They twisted and bent quickly. I'm sure they'd work if you were doing some economy car OEM coils... But don't try it on anything bigger!

Since there's virtually no clearance between the spring and the shock, this was really the only compressor that would work without scraping on the shock body, just barely. It will still scrape if you dont tighten them evenly.

I found that oiling up the threaded rod makes the sliders less likely to bind, as indicated in the instructions. Also, as detailed in the instructions, light tapping with a hammer will allow the sliders to decompress without binding.

The nut and rod head are nowhere near 1". I found the nut fit a 26mm and the rod head fit 1 1/16". So stupid and I had to go out and buy these odd sized wrenches and sockets which are not cheap.

Kinda quirky, but I guess it works for my application, and is still better than taking it to a local shop, who in my area, are mostly incompetent.

I am pretty satisfied with this spring compressor set. It grips the coils securely, which was a big plus for me. There is no way they will slip off and let the spring go flying. They tightened up nicely. I put a little oil on the threads so the nut would turn easily and it worked great. The only negative is if space is tight, they may not work. Due to their design, they don't hug the spring. They stand out a little (maybe 2") from the spring. Other than that, I was very pleased with them. They seem like one of the safest kind out there, and because they tighten onto the coil, they won't slide around the coil either.
