I made a spring compressor tool today so I could install new HL springs. I used a 2x2x3/16 angle, 1x1 square tube, and two 1x1/8 flat iron. All purchased from the home depot for around $25. The tool worked great on the front springs. But the back springs on my 09 brute are signficantly stronger than the front. I bent the two 1/8 flat irons I was using as the handle. I'm gonna pick up two 3/16 flat iron tomorrow and remake the handle. Hopefully that will do the trick. I'll take pictures tomorrow.
