    I'm thinking about buying one to do my wife's car, and compress my bilstein's.

    RUN AWAY!!! SERIOUSLY!!!

    I have one sitting in my garage waiting to go back to Harbor Freight. Its fine for a Honda Accord, but too dangerous for the Tacoma.

    Where to start? See the pic...

    The force of the compressed coil actually started pulling the bolts through the slots...it was like a 3 stooges video, I stood across the garage and release the hydraulic foot pump with a broom stick.:eek:

    Also, the wing nut bolts it comes with are the cheapest steel on the planet, almost aluminum. They stripped out too.

    Yeah I've did stuff and in the process of doing more.
    just take them somewhere to have them compressed. Its the safest thing to do.
