  • External Coil Spring Compressor
External Coil Spring Compressor is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are good! They state that this is and external compressor but what makes it good is that it can be used internally. I did all the springs on my 65 Cutlass/442 with this tool.( I had an internal compressor but on the Cutlass springs the arms will not grip the coils. ) I put two of the compressors inside the spring on one side and in the correct position which put a slight bend in the spring which is necessary for installation and with two of them it made it safe in case on failed. Once the spring is in place I raised lower control arm a little and removed both compressors through the bottom hole in the arm in pieces. Very easy and safe.

I need a super heavy duty compressor. It is for 1 ton front coils on a 1962 Cadillac hearse. Are these heavy enough to do the job? If not , what would you have?
