    Rentable Coil Spring Compression Tool - 1967 1968 1969 1970 1971 1972 1973 Mercury Cougar Ford Mustang

    We will loan this coil spring compressor for 60 days, with a 100% refundable purchase price. 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.
