My guys really goofed it up. I am surprised you got the do it yourselfer spring compressors to work. did you get some commercial type ones? I tried 2 sets and I could not get the spring compressed enough to pop the nut off. almost breaking the rented tools! so they used the shop one and he had a hard time turning the wheel to compress them! the springs I used were taller and boy they were a bitch to compress of course and I used the lowest perch of the 5100.

I should have used the highest setting and scraped the new springs, but I had the nice height. in fact I wanted just to level, it was higher in front now! so I had to raise the rear with blocks!

Glad it all worked out.
