Spring Compressor

Last weekend I was trying to replace my front shocks, but the spring compressor didn't fit into my springs(03 Liberty). I need to know what brand of spring compressor will fit stock liberty springs.

Many auto parts stores do the "loaner" tool thing. Did that for my TJ when I lifted it. Have not changed springs on the KJ yet - so can't help on the right one. But it is info that I'm sure I'll need in the near future.

So at least this is a bump for you.

Did you do a search ?

I did do a search, but the one that came up was the same one that I already tried.

I recently replaced my front cv axle shaft. I had to remove the lower part of the strut referred to as the clevis. I thought that I would have to compress the spring to release the tension. No rental tool that I found would fit, the coil is too tight. After searching, I found that the spring has virtually no tension on it when the Jeep is lifted (with the jack not on the lower arm of course). With it lifted you can remove the lower clevis bolt, and the bolts that hold it in place in the engine compartment. The assembly will drop out and then you can check and see if it looks like the energy in the spring is released.
