Spring Compressor

Here are some pictures of the spring compression tool that I built to safely disassemble my TR250’s front suspension. this tool would work just as well on a TR6.   I’m not quite sure how all the official tools from Moss or TRF work but I designed mine to use the bottom spring tray that ends up being attached to the lower a-arms.  This just allowed me to very safely remove all the energy in the spring and remove it.  The hole kit cost me around 5 bucks.  The threaded rod, washers, and nuts from came from the local hardware store.  The rod is 2 ft long, 1/2″ threaded rod & the aluminum plate was a scrap from a friends machine shop.
