MII Front Springs Installation Q's

I have a set of the Harbor Freight spring compressors and just can't bring myself to trust them,, they seem to bend (the long bolt part) far easier than I think they should.

So,, I'm looking for suggestions on what spring compressor to get that will work and be reasonably safe.

If you have the external compressors I strongly suggest you pick up an internal compressor. The external type works well for struts but the best way to compress a true coil spring is with an internal compressor. Check Eastwood's catalog or look here.
