I bought the $56 pair from Napa. They were the only ones short enough to not interfere with the spring perches.

yeah the loaner ones that i used from Vato Zone would hit the perches.. and pretty much everything else in there.. and when i finally got it all in, it was hard as hell to get the spring compressors off of the spring.

i did alot of spinning and uncompressing and recompressing and adjusting to get the vato zone ones to work

this time im only using HF compressor

Ok, silly question for you. Why do you all need spring compressors to do your lifts. I did my TJs RE5.5 on my garage floor with 6 ton jack stands and a floor jack. I supported the frame with the stands and lowered the diffs to the floor with the sway bars/shocks disconected. There was plenty of room to slip the springs in. Is it different with GCs?
