i got a set from autozone but it was kinda big for quad springs. it worked great to take em off but couldnt compress em enough to put them back on with the spacers. I used the spare tire holder under my truck and a hyd jack to put them back together. Didnt cost me a dime but a little frustration and sweat to do it.

I use two ratchet style tie downs. I have used that method about 7-8 times now and it has worked well. I put a big screw driver or steel rod in the bottom hole where the shock mounts....then run the straps on farthest up coil...ones on each side... anchor it to the steel rod ran threw the bottom bolt hole and then ratchet both sides. I am sure you can figure out what I am saying...lol. not good at explaining things sometimes. I know it sounds stupid but it has worked great for me....I didn't have the extra cash for the tool at the time.

Honestly, the thing is so dangerous, I wouldn't want to take on the liability. I work for lawyers. Know what 1000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean is??? I know your kidding. Its not hard to make one, but I would user stouter angle iron than what I used, if I made it again.

I built a compressor like the HL one.. Works good just put some sort of safety device on it.. Shock springs dont mix with the face.. Trust me.. lol i built it with stuff just layin around the shop.. i agree with robisra about using thicker angle iron tho.. It was really easy tool to build.. Just very dangerous!

Best advice for you is to either dont do it or buy a real spring compressor made for atv springs....I tried EVERY method on here (rented tool from autozone, ratchet strap, hydraulic jack, etc) and even tried some of my own and only thing i got was a busted nose and several lost chunks of skin and a lost finger nail.....
