Re: Coil Spring compressor

I use 3 rachet tie down straps. They will not scratch the springs.

Use 2-3 ratchet straps and keep the bottom bolt in the bolt eye. run the strap on the top of the spring down to the eye bolt and the other side to the bolt as well on both sides of the spring and ratchet it down till you can get the spring retainer plate slid off and then release.(all 4 or 6 hooks will be on the bottom bolt)

reverse prosess to put springs back together.
i have done 4 sets like this and it works great
