Mehhhh.. mine wouldn’t keep the shock straight. There was a tremendous amount of pressure and it kept wanting to cant sideways. I worked and fiddled for a while and finally decided it wasn’t worth it. All it takes is something to let loose and you hurt yourself or the shock. And that $400 price difference is going to look cheap in comparison. I wanted and tried for the lesser price option but you really get what you pay for with this.I agree if you’re doing lots of spring work, it’s worth it to buy a better unit. But for weekend warriors, the one I posted does a great job for 1/5th the price.
I thought the thing was pretty crappy until I took it all apart and greased it up. Night and day from “out of the box”.
Do you have any buddies locally you could spilt one with?Wow that is some big $$ but I do agree and appreciate your point that if you hurt yourself or the shock it will be way more money spent. However, I will only use it to put on crossover silencers and that is my only planned use. I may see if the local Oriellys has a decent one to rent....that might be a better option for me. Definitely appreciate the advice and insight guys.
Yup.. I’m buying a 4 seat when they’re out I’ll need it then and I figured this might make it a little more enticing for me to pull them apart inspect and clean occasionally. Annnnd it’s the end of the year and I needed to spend moneyThat’s the way to do it. If you can get like 4 friends with UTV’s and ATV’s to go in on it and split the cost, then I’d grab the better one.
I bought the same one, Makes removing and installing the springs super easy, worth every penny. You get what you pay for.
Yup.. it’s super nice being able to set your ride height off the machine and then install the springs. I also noticed I could get the springs clocked and aligned on the compressor before I installed them on the machine.I bought the same one, Makes removing and installing the springs super easy, worth every penny.
