Let me know how this goes - I've been looking for a solution as well. I'm hoping to be able to adjust them whilst installed... well, because I already installed mine hahaha. I've got 600lb springs FYI - you're welcome to swing by and see if you like the height.

Weight-wise, I've only got a single compressor under the hood and the 600's feel nice and plush with street driving. I'm 4-5 clicks from the softest setting.

pretty sure any grease is ok. they come with a light amount of it, and most reviews say it'll only mess up if its not greased enough. full disassembly and grease, not just the visible threads.

Spring Compressor

I made a spring compressor out of all thread rod, scrap aluminum and scrap steel. It uses a 4Runner screw jack to compress the spring. It doesn't scratch powder coating on the spring.

Which brand? I tried a set similar and the depth of the arms were too long. I hit the threaded body before grabbing the coil.

And even if I could clear the threaded body, the safety also didnít clear

Looks like the same ones, mine are pro point - which is just a white label store brand (like harbor freight). The safety pins do take a bit to engage, I honestly don't bother with them. If you alternate between sides, and only tighten each one a bit a time they stay fairly straight and centered. I don't have any issues with hitting the threads however.

I had the same issue with 3 different brand of spring compressors. Yeah people said don't worry about it and just crank them down. I figured it wasn't worth safety issue to save some money plus was planning to take it in for alignment anyways.

Glad you eventually found a compressor that worked properly
