what type of coil spring compressor are you guys using? one I bought one from advance auto is too wide and will not fit inside spring, without having to modify it. have factory service manuals and see how it works with no problems. are you guys removing the plate [ inside the fender } that covers the top half of spring, and using a strut compressor?

If you're still looking for a spring compressor, let me know. I have one used only once, and at my age I'll probably never use it again. It's an "inside" type and worked well for me. Scary operation though!!
