Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit short. Ok for medium coil springs but is short for larger cars. For safety it really needs a second set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and well fitting Bought to compress the front coil springs on a grand scenic 2, these were sold for a slightly lower price elsewhere but still value for money from screwfix. They look and feel well made, felt confident they would do the job and they did perfectly. They fitted my springs really well and didn't look as though they'd slip or move. I'd definitely recommend these to any home mechanic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very very poor First time used managed to clamp spring about 3/4 of the way. Most of the threads had worn off. I suppose you pay for what you get. Didn't expect them to last forever but thought I would have at least for a good few springs out them before they started to show signs of wear. Don't recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Price. I bought this spring compressor in order to carry out a roadside removal of a broken front spring on my car which left it undriveable. I found the compressor easy to use, well made with strong clamps and bolts and at a great price.

The specification of the Compressor states a spring length of 254mm is this correct as most cars have longer springs when un compressed. Or is this tool just for changing the strut/ shockabsorber and not the actual spring, Thank you

Asked by: Hymac
Hello, thank you for the question. I can confirm the length is correct at 254mm and that this tool is indeed designed for removing the actual spring from the strut. The clamps which go over the spring are not designed to be placed at the very top / bottom as this would then not allow the correct placement inside the strut. They however are designed to be used a few coils from the top / bottom and then when compressed allow enough movement to remove the top nut safety or allow enough compression to re-fit the spring into the strut. Hope this helps, regards, Hilka Tools

Just need to know if this tool is capable of compressing coil springs on my Ford Mondeo mk3 hatchback

Do Hilka produce additional coil grip plates to suit different vehicle coil types or is the supplied compressor suitable of catering for most macpherson strut types

Are these compressors suitable for use on motorcycle rear shock absorbers?

Asked by: Maltings4
Hello, motorcycle shocks have a more compact coil than a car shock and thus these spring compressors are not suited for motorcycle coils. A specialist motorcycle coil spring compressor should be used. Regards, Hilka Tools
