a big socket.and a wrench.
Without removing the arms from the car.

Again..Think early Ford suspension.

Must be a coil spring compressor.

to the right answer !!
I'll give you another hint.
After 1948 Ford made a change that made this tool unnecessary.

I believe the tool is for install leaf spring bushings.
|Today 04:42 PM|
But you're on the right track...It is for suspension.

Here's an old tool used on Fords.
Can you guess what it's used for?

|Too Many Projects||On the Malibu, if I remove the plug with the engine not running, it will drain 3-4 quarts of oil, so it is coming back from somewhere. I know 7 quarts isn't the total capacity but it's more than 50%, so with a few more drains with the engine off, I will have exchanged about 90% of the fluid. Far better than leaving it for 90,000 miles and then having trans problems from old, burned fluid...|

|OldTech||The dealer and shops that typically do this work use a pressure feed exchange system. It sucks the old oil out and replaces it with fresh oil. That is the only way you can change all the oil. Remember that the converter doesn't drain so you are leaving 3 to 4 quarts of oil oil in your transmission. The machine has adapters that adapt to the cooler lines. It takes about 30 quarts of oil to completely flush the transmission.|

Seems like a giant step backwards to me.

Great vid, wish I'd seen it a month ago. Next time I'm doing my wife's car myself.
