    I've been looking at Autozone to rent a spring compressor and it doesn't look like they have a hydraulic one for rent, just the hand cranking ones. Any thoughts?

    You don't need one. Jack up the truck on jackstands and then jackI up theto lower controll arm. Then loosten the top bolt on the shock and let the lower arm fully droop. When installing, just reverse the steps.

    Sounds good then, no spring compressor. But if we end up needing it we can always go to autozone.
