Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome heavy duty spring compressor This is a great heavy duty Coil spring compressor. Only problem it has is limited travel for certain coil over strut assemblies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spring compressors. I have 2 other coil springs compressors. Have never felt comfortable with either but they allowed me to replace shocks on my own rather than paying someone else. They would not work on my E Type rear suspension. I wish I had discovered the Eastwood McPherson spring compressors first, I would only have one tool and lots more hair!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well for my SAAB I used this tool to replace the front coil springs on my 1993 SAAB 900 Turbo. I followed the directions with the tool as well as those in the Bentley manual for my SAAB, and had no difficulty swapping out the springs. I have used other spring compressors in the past for various applications and I felt safest using this style. I chose this alternative to the official factory tool which lists for over $1,000. I also trust Eastwood's products over similar ones found on large internet retailer websites.

What is the maximum coil wire diameter this is rated for (i.e. 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", etc.)?

Asked by: BiRd
This tool is not rated or sized by the thickness of the wire the coil spring is constructed of. This set features three Yoke sizes that will accommodate coil spring outside diameters ranging from. 3.13" to 7.63". Actually, the number of coils and the spacing between them along with the stiffness of the spring material more directly affects the rating of a spring than just the thickness of the wire it is constructed of. It is intended for cars and light truck use only.
