Use it on lowering springs. These kinds you have only 3 to 4 coils you could work with not like stock springs.
Compresses great and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by iespr Product has a professional construction and very ergonometric.
For passenger cars and SUV vehicles, I think the studs are too longs. should be a different version for Passengers versus Trucks vehicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mmathras Solid and secure design
I used this model to replace my old spring compressor which had the two-pronged cast hooks at one end. One of these hooks snapped off while under compression...and the broken piece became a projectile (which fortunately caused no bodily injury or damage within the garage.) Within an hour I had this "improved" design unit with one-piece, non-forked, hooked clamp ends doing its job faultlessly. Much more secure and less likely to fail under stress.

Used these spring compressors for my 2012 ram 4x4 when installing front coil overs and rear shocks . well worth the money and I would recommend these to any DIY

Rated 4 out of 5 by notfastenuf simple and sturdy
Made quick work of transferring springs to new struts. Very basic tool with little that can go wrong. Only complaint is that to get compressors 180 degrees apart around the spring, one of the tensioning nuts would inevitably end up rubbing the spring plate. Nothing severe but prevented the use of my impact wrench to adjust the tensioning nut on that side. Had to use an open end wrench and just slowed the process a bit. A bit more offset from the spring to the tensioning nut would give more flexibility for positioning. Otherwise, very effective tool that does what it's supposed to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tnracing this product does work
I know this has been the same design for years and does work , but it should and needs a third compressor, two is not enough, the bolts where flexing pretty bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AZChuck Fine spring compressor
With the recent Pep Boys online discounts, it made more sense to me to purchase a spring compressor vs. renting/borrowing.
My sample did a fine job. One leg has a rather pronounced bend in the screw, but not enough to impair use. Very heavy and well-built. Safety pins easily engage and retract. Felt very safe and secure using this compressor to service my strut towers.
