    Description

    Please Note:

    Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.

    "Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt.  The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.

    We will loan this coil spring compressor for 60 days, with a 100% refundable purchase price. This tool now comes with a bearing to make the job much easier. Only available to customers that purchase our front suspension rebuild kits. Tool must be returned in undamaged condition with no missing parts within the 60 day time period.

    Returns past 60 days are subject to a 25% restocking fee.

    Coil spring compressing tool, this is a must for safely removing front coil springs on any 1967-73 Mercury Cougar and 1965-73 Ford Mustang. Let us know if you're doing a 71-73....the reason being that there is no place to bolt in the top bracket onto the shock tower. If you're renting one of these tools, we'll just send a shock tower cap from an earlier year car to help you along.

    Not recommended for heavy duty coil springs like found on pickup trucks and full sized cars.

    First off this tool is good for 67-70 Mustang and Cougars I believe. I used it on my 71 Cougar because I had a shock tower cap from my 68 Mustang. The 71-73 Cougars have a single shock type rod that bolts to the top of the shock tower cap verses the two bolts on the Mustang and Cougar. I was able to extract my old springs with this tool and used a crow bar laid down at an angle on my upper control arm allow which allowed the spring to slide out. It can catch on the upper ball joint cover otherwise. This tool is easier to set up than the old style compressor. I then used my old coil spring compressor to put in the new springs. Definitely a plus to have a friend with a two post lift and to have an extra set of hands.

    While this tool does a good job of providing a safe compressing method, it does so mounted in the car.

    You cannot compress the spring prior to installation, so if you do not have 'un-assembled' level of travel in the upper 'A' arm, you cannot get it in place.

    So a simple coil spring swap means disconnecting enough of the steering and suspension that your A arm will drop fully.
