I hate using spring compressors, once had a set slip & something went past my ear at great speed.

Good spring compressors are expensive. I have two proper sets in the workshop but they're no good for small diameter springs unfortunately. I may have to change the design of my diy compressors if I can't get them to work. I have an idea though :wink:

I meant to ask you if you'd managed to get in touch with Peter. He replied to my pm the other day and he said he'd been on holiday. I did mention you'd been trying to contact him.

I made an small alteration to my spring compressor and managed to fit the offside rear spring/shocker assembly. However part of the coilover bracket fouled on the spring so the whole lot had to come off and 5mm needed cutting off the two upright parts of the bracket leading up to the top mounting holes. I feel I might have weakened that part of the bracket as I've lost the nice rounded profile at the top so I made a strengthening gusset to fit in between the two parts. I shall leave overnight for the paint to dry and refit tomorrow.
