Features acme threaded rod for durability and smooth compression and a built in safety kit that locks the coil in place and saves time.
Easily compresses most MacStrut springs and allows for repair on strut tubes, bent struts and other damaged pieces.

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.
These are high quality and have a surprisingly low profile. It is bad enough getting springs out, adding extra width and it's over. My old set wouldn't work, I got these and the springs slid out
Did a great job on my Infiniti G20. Did all 4 struts with only minor adjustments to make it work. They were very sturdy and safe to use. This is my first time using spring compressors so, i have nothing to compare against.

I've owned these for about ten years. They've held up well, but I'd only say they work okay. As far as construction, they're quite beefy. In fact, The paws are a little too thick. I don't see the point in the safety pins and the nuts are a little on the wide side. Usually as you compress the springs, these giant nuts get close to the strut and its difficult to use the box end of the wrench; and a socket is out of the question. If you need 'em, they'll work, but i would try a different style if I could do it all over again.

I used these coil compressors for installing new coil springs on my Jeep Wrangler. They are very strong, easy to use, and built to last. I used an electric impact gun to assist with using them, but an air ratchet would have been much easier. Too bad I didn't own this set - I borrowed a friend's, but I hopefully will own a set soon. If you don't have power tools to assist with these, you'd better have Popeye the Sailor arms. UPDATE: I bought the one's from my friend. I'm very happy that I now can do any of the suspension maintenace on my Jeep!.
