I need some coil compressors. Best ones?
I have the King 2.5's and they are at stock height. I want to lift em' 1.5" but trying to crank the coils down without them compressed it a real hassle. So i need a coil compressor and i need to know what ones are good and weather or not anyone has does this without actually taking out the whole shock/coil system. :confused:

The craftsman ones at sears are good, lifetime warranty, and sears is everywhere. Bout the same price as everyone else. Whatever you do, don't use or buy the ones that use U bolts to attach to the spring. They totally suck.

Ya i have been looking at a few different types and i have no idea the differences and what design is better. I guess my question is answered.

Get a hydraulic coil spring compressor similar to link below, could always rent it out or charge a 12 pack to help others out.


or see if there is a machine shop locally (napa near me does it for $15 per strut).
