Question about 1999 GMC Envoy
You need a coil spring compressor. There are two basic types: scissor style and the threaded rod style. Both have clamps that go over the coil on opposite sides. You then compress it by tightening the nuts or bolt to take the tension off the strut base and strut mount. Then take off the strut mount and replace strut. This must be done with extreme respect being paid to the tool. A compressed coil spring lets go of the tool when compressed and bad things can happen. The tool can rented at most auto parts. You can make it with threaded rod, nuts, and clamps but remember to use stuff that will hold a good bit of force. I'd guess most strut springs start at 300 lbs/in and you need to compress the spring a good couple of inches.
