Excellent Product
This spring compressor is very easy to use. In fact, I even used it to remove the rear springs (instead of using the pry bar method). They easily compressed the upgraded (stiffer) after-market springs for my 2006 Pontiac GTO. I highly recommend this tool.

Don't buy if you own a honda..
Do not buy this tool of you have an acura or honda, it will not work with most of their springs... The jaws are too big to fit into the spring.. Now I have to return this and buy something that works! WASTE OF TIME!

Struts

I bought it to use on my truck. Wouldn't work. Could have used it on any other model.

Decent value for the money

The product was reasonably well made for the price, but it was a bit large and not able to compress smaller springs or in tight places. Works well on larger struts and springs, but not on the smaller compact car sizes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Exactly what I needed

While replacing struts I found I needed to compress the spring to get the old shock absorber out and the new one in. These worked perfectly; after three attempts I had the top and bottom of the strut assembly perfectly aligned for re-installation. I could not have done this job without them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Strut Spring Size

On 2001 Toyota Tacoma the spring diameter is too large for the safety pins to engage. Built very well and of quality.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

very sturdy

had no problem with 2001 Jetta struts. The locking pin gives you a lot of confidence that it cannot release the spring on you.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

They get the job done

They do what they are intended to do. Only issue I had with them was one of the safety pins was slightly bent making removal of the compressor difficult after the first strut. After a quick straightening, moved onto the second strut and finished the job.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made in USA!

Still Made in USA! Great value Great quality I used these to replace four struts on a 2003 honda accord ex coupe. Worked perfectly! I can reccomend these at this price point as long as they are American made. If production moves overseas then there are better alternatives.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Got the job done

I bought this item for myself as I needed them to do a strut job on my car but I also loaned them to my father in law so he could change the struts on his three vehicles. They held up just fine through 4 cars worth of struts. They have a large bolt on the top that I did have to buy an extra socket for. Invest in a 15/16 impact socket if you plan on buying these as well.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
