Exchanging front struts

I would think you could get creative with some all-thread rod, nuts that
thread onto the threaded rod, pipe that will slide over the threaded rod,
some metal plate that could be bent into a couple of hooks, and a welder.

Or, you could try something from JC Whitney or probably your FLAPS.


I picked up a set of spring compressors cheap sometime in the past. My
father made his own over 20 years ago using the method I suggested above.

I have never removed front springs on this type of car, so I do not know if
my spring compressors would even work. It worked fine on the rear springs.
