this is the tool I made to compress the springs. it consists of 2 1&1/2 inch floor flanges, the top flange is bored out to 2.125(approx. 2&1/8 inch diameter). the bottom flange has a standard plug screwed in to hold the shock end. the threaded rods are 3/8 by 16 allthread, 2 foot long. I double bolted the top flange with grade 8 nuts and hardened washers. The drive nuts are grade 8 with 2 greased hardened washers to reduce galling and friction. use at your own risk, but it worked for me.
