Does anyone have experience with a TRF Spring Compressor for a TR3? I am
rebuilding my front suspention and I understand if the spring is not removed
correctly it can be DANGEROUS. It came with NO directions.
I am at the point where the shock has been removed and it is time to take the
spring out. I put the shaft of the compressor through the opening for the
shock. The lower end has been positioned over the 4 shock bolts and the upper
end at the top of the shock tower. I tightened the top bolt until the shock
was slightly compressed. I then removed the six nuts/four bolts from the
lower A arm. I loosened the top bolt of the compressor until the entire
compressor was loose, but the spring is still there. What am I doing wrong?
