i used a tool that looked similar to what you're installing. I rented it from Auto Zone. But be careful, those springs are DEADLY! Good luck guy. torinotroy

I used those on my Impala in high school and they suck, I wouldn't use them again. They always come loose and make a lot of racket. In any case if your set on using them in a manner to compress the spring, I've used a log chain wrapped around the frame and under a small floor jack, positioned under the lower A arm. Then pump up the jack and it compress's the spring.

I think they would be best installed by shoving them up the tail pipe as far as you can get them.

If you want to lower your car for cheap cut the springs. There are many good posts you can search for on cutting springs.
