    Strut compressor

    I am going to have to replace the front struts on my truck soon. What compressors do you guys use? Or do you just take it to a shop and have them switched out?

    Truck springs are h-e-a-v-y d-u-t-y and I do not dare tackle them with either of the external spring compressors that I have. One of the few things I would take to a competent garage to let them do.

    I've used the ones form the parts stores that you can rent but like Jeff said you have to be careful. If you don't tighten evenly you risk get bit
