    Hey all,

    Anyone in MA have a real spring compressor and want to help a guy out mounting some 885's on a pair of Biilies? I've got a McPherson type set but am leery of sending springs across the garage at 500 mph.

    There is a way without a spring compressor, seems easy and fairly safe-ish. Let me see if I can find the youtube

    *edit* found it

    Nevermind!

    I braved the wild mcpherson strut compressor.

    Actually not that bad. Some of the videos I've seen of guys using these things made 'em look like widowmakers.
