Front Strut Spring Compressor Tools

These affordable spring compressor tools make the job of replacing springs and struts an easy-to-do job for the avid do-it-yourselfer.

A pair of compressors work together to compress the McPherson strut spring enough to remove the spring or replace the strut insert. It grabs onto all four points of the coil, locks onto them with the safety locks and, when evenly tightened, releases pressure to the top plate of the strut assembly.

High quality acme threaded rod and forged construction intended for repetitive use. Broad spring contact with latches to lock in place.

All 1975-2003 - spring compressor tool
Warning: Most commonly available spring compressors are designed for a maximum spring diameter of 6” and are not large enough to safely compress Volvo’s large-diameter springs. If you are considering a cheaper alternative to our compressor, read the fine print to make sure that they are compatible, as most aren’t.

Internal Rear Spring Compressor for IRS Models

If you’re thinking about purchasing our Nivomat conversion kit and installing it yourself, be sure to purchase one of our internal spring compressors. It fits inside the coil spring to compress it where an external compressor just can’t fit. Designed with IRS vehicles specifically in mind, it works with the springs supplied in our conversion kits and compresses them to a length that provides for easy installation.

Combining them with the Nivomat conversion kits is still a very affordable alternative to factory Nivomat shock replacement.

For your safety, we strongly advise that you do not attempt this job without this tool and above average do-it yourself skills. You might get the old spring out, but you won’t get the new spring back in!

WARNING! One of our technicians broke his finger while attempting to install the spring without this tool!

No more using a big pipe wrench or vise grips to damage the outside of the nut while struggling to loosen it. Made from hardened steel and finished in industrial black for long life.
