Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
You first need a good pair of spring clamps like these
Note the extra little hooks supplied. They are used like this
This type is dangerous because it can slip off, no safety hooks you see. The power in a clamped spring is tremendous, so you don't want that to happen.
First jack up the car one side with a block of wood under the suspension arm so the spring is still compressed. Place the clamps on the spring securely and tighten up the adjustments. You may need to remove the tyre. If desired have someone heavy sit on the side of the car to compress the spring a bit more.
Despite how they are called, you can't really efficiently compress the spring very much further with these tools, They are really only clamps.
Replace the wheel temporarily if needed and let the car down on the jack. Then jack it up again, but this time under the car body so the suspension hangs free. Remove the wheel again and the spring should be loose enough to go on with removal.
