Yea, if you can find one used or a good tool rental place its a lot cheaper. The only reason I purchased one is because I have done enough struts to warrant it. I found a 7200 model for $150 on Craigslist but it was missing one of the arms. But just make sure the shop line up the marks as I outlined here and your strut should pop right in.NVSteve wrote:I just took a look at that spring compressor you bought. A bit out of my price range for a 1 time use. If I end up doing this, it will definitely be done by a local shop.
I'm going to have to take some of my draw bars out and see which ones fit the best now. But I'm sure your right, I'll need some sort of drop bar.Fofiddy wrote: So I take it you are going to have to buy a hitch with a 3 or 4 " drop now to compensate for the lift? Now the question stands if you can squeeze some airlift bags as a safety mesure for towing, odds are the ones for the stock setup aren't long enough for the job.
