The OTC Front Coil Spring Compressor is one that fits most late model rear wheel drive domestic vehicles, in which the coil springs are between the upper and lower control arms. This tool features four case hardened, self-aligning plates to ensure correct load distribution under tension. It is perfect for GM, Ford, and Chrysler vehicles. This compressor ensures safer installation of coil springs, by quickly compressing coil springs for easy removal and replacement. It comes with a barrel nut, a thrust bearing, a lower ball, a threaded rod, an upper ball, a pin, and four support plates.
The OTC Front Coil Spring Compressor comes with a lifetime limited warranty. The first step in using the compressor is removing the spring. Once removed, install the new spring, and then remove the tool from the spring. The pin in the upper ball and the tang on the lower ball prevent the support plates and threaded rod from turning under load. It is always important that you verify that the pin in the upper ball is in the support plate slot and also to verify that the tang in the lower ball is in the support plate slot. To ensure the long life and maximum efficiency of the compressor, always clean and lubricate the threads on the threaded rod, before every use.
