Coil Spring Compressors
Yes, if you need to remove springsCost10-40

What's it for?
- Compressing a coil spring, so it can be safely removed from the strut

These come in various designs. The most basic simply have a hook at each end and a thread which goes through the middle. There is a nut on one end which you tighten, and thus compress the spring. More expensive versions have multiple hooks/grib the spring more securely. Some also encorporate safety catches to stop the hooks from getting knocked off the spring by accident.
