Want to swop out rear spring. What do you guys use to compress it with - the normal car coil spring compressors would probably not work.

This is a Racetech spring that is very hard so it us going to be a bit of a challenge.

I have a 20 ton press, but without the right attachments or correct set-up it can be a dangerous exercise.

Adendorff sells a hydraulic coil spring compressor at 2K but (fortunately?) they are out of stock.

Just to close this one off -.

In the end we did it by using two of the coil spring compressors that you buy at car accessory shops (single hook top and bottom) and then modifying them by cutting the hooks back a bit so that they engage the spring without touching the body of the suspension unit.

Thanks again to Paul for the spring.
