66 coil compression tool
« on: December 08, 2017, 04:37:02 PM »
I need to replace upper control arm on my 66 and need a coil compression tool to safely remove/compress the coil springs. Does anyone have these in Perth for hire or sale? Any info appreciated.

See if you can find an older rental place (not Kennards) I found such a place here in Melbourne and rented on for $15

If you're handy, they're very easy to make.   I didn't worry about using a bearing:

I cut the bottom off a shock and welded it the some threaded rod
