John L, that is a good idea, been using that setup for a while. However, you can buy the tool/tools from National Chevy. It's been a while since I bought them but the part number is 1357 and price is 40.00, but if you look at them you can make your own out of 1/8 inch flat stock. Had thought of looking on the computer I'd have saved 40 bucks. Make 'em a tad wider than springs and shorter. Open the hood all the way and force it a little further, then close it and take springs off
