2018 2.7l 4x4
I've had the truck lift off jack stands doing stuff like that and I did not feel safe. I got one of these to use instead of the typical spring compressors.
It works well, but you're getting what you pay for. No assembly or usage instructions are included. Take your time and make sure the strut is secure before disassembly. I was a bit nervous with it, but it was very stable as I struggled with seized nuts at the top of my OEM struts.
thats the right way to do it, if you can justify the costI finally had to break down and buy a safe spring compressor, I’ve been doing side jobs here and there for family and friends and for whatever reason lately a bunch of coilovers/struts.
This thing is a beast.
