Strut Compressor Tool

I called a local suspension shop and asked if they would take the springs off of my strut assemblies. They gave me an estimate of $30 per strut. Against my better judgement, I looke at Harbor Freight and found a strut compressor tool that only cost $33, so I ordered it.

Here's what UPS delivered to my door.

After opening things up and assembling them, this is the final compressor tool. It's quite beefy and has safety pins and a safety ring to prevent the spring from "sproinging" while under compression. My strut assemblies are at a friends house now, but I hope to try this out when I get things back, or at least try it on the rear springs. More cool tools! (insert maniacal laugh here...)
