Default Torsion bar tool?

So I bought some ReadyLift torsion keys to level out my truck. Instead of buying the actual tool to put them on, I modified a C clamp. I tried using the clamp but didn't have any luck because the tension was too hard to turn the clamp rod.
I'm looking to see if anybody on here has the tool that I can borrow? I checked with local parts stores to see if i could rent it and nobody has it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Tommy

I can't remember off the top of my head what the tool is called but the one I used looked like a C clamp but it had a big hole on the end instead of the flat clamp piece.

How did the hole help you better? Im looking for the tool because of the nipple that is on the top of the clamp. This ensures that the clamp wont slip off when youre working with it because that nipple sticks into a hole in the special bracket they gave me when installing them.

The hole didn't help better. The tool itself which is called a ball joint press was 10x stronger than a C clamp.
