Not much else to that front suspension that would require a large tool.

You got it....It's a spring spreader.

It's not for installing leaf spring bushings but you're so close
to the right answer !!

I'll give you another hint.
After 1948 Ford made a change that made this tool unnecessary.

But you're on the right track...It is for suspension.

bubba1955 Here's an old tool used on Fords.

Far better than leaving it for 90,000 miles and then having trans problems from old, burned fluid...
Agreed. Even just changing 60% is better than nothing. I didn't mean to criticize, just inform.
