Anyone have a really good coil spring compressor. I think it has to be special to fit my springs, or does anyone have suggestions on how to get my new coil springs in on the front of my car?

harbor freight spring compressor. It's simple, yet effective. I don't know your particular application but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

or you can go to oriellys and you give them like half the retail value of the part and when you take it back they give you all your money back so you can basically borrow it for free.

the harbor freight spring compressor is pretty good, but having 2 is really helpful. They are inexpensive and cheap Wink too. about 12 bucks I think. that would be a good shot.

I was just gonna say that you could borrow my big HF spring compressor. The little screw ones are okay, but after I nearly lost a finger in one last year, I thought it worth investing in a good one. Smile

I actually did not even use a compressor when I swapped out my springs on the RS about 7 years ago (pre-coilovers). Had no issues.
