Spend the extra money for a better tool.
I used this set of spring compressor tool one time and even with support from a crescent wrench the unit bent sideways which scratched the shock body and scraped paint from the spring. I put one clamp in my vise and supported the other with the wrench and about half way through the spring removal the outer housing twisted sideways and popped off the spring. Need stronger caseing and should be at least 1 to 2 inches longer.

The look of them was good but didn't work as they should have
This product kept sliding around the spring as I tightened it. They did not work for my project.

Hi, the Tusk shock spring compressor worked as advertised. Very happy with it. If it was an inch longer I could have got another ring to compress. Thank you.

Absolute Garbage
These are complete junk. I’ve bought a lot of Tusk products and all have been fine up till these compressors. They slip on the spring rendering them useless. As well, they scratched the crap out of my new 800 dollar Shock Therapy springs. Do not waste your money on these!

Great value for their usefulness
Just plain simple to use and a must have if working on the springs. I would not have gotten the tender spring swap done anywhere near as quick or easy without these. For $30 you can’t go wrong.

I had spring compressors for McPherson struts but they were too big
These work very well, very important to lubricate them before udong

Does this work for atv spring?
barry d on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Tusk spring compressor for my Tiger 800 rear shock spring which requires it to be compressed before it can be removed from the shock body. This tool is a universal design and worked great to compress the spring so I could get at the retaining clip which holds the unit in place. Most ATV shock springs are very similar so I would recommend this tool for that application.
Would the Tusk shock spring compressor tool work with fork springs as well?
Jonathan L on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Tusk shock spring compressor tool is designed for spring coil over shocks (rear shock(s) on a motorcycle). Here's how it works, the kit comes with 2 compressors, each one has 2 hooks that when fully spread apart hook onto the coil spring, you hook onto the spring with 1 and hook the other onto the spring at the opposite side if the spring/shock. As you alternately (a few revolutions at a time) tighten (turn the screw) on each compressor, well it compresses the spring until you have enough play to remove the retaining fastener. At this point you (alternately) loosen the compressors until the spring is no longer in tension. Now you can slide off the spring and disassemble the shock to replace seals, etc. A tool is not needed for the front forks as the spring is inside the tubes, when you remove the hex cap on the top of the forks by the time the hex cap is ready to come off there is only hand pressure on the spring, as long as you keep downward pressure on the hex cap while you unscrew it there is little chance of bodily injury or 911 calls for an ambulance, although I do know some people that force me to get my phone ready for 911 as soon as they pick up a wrench, ha. Hope this helps (and gives a chuckle). I can tell you though that although the Tusk spring compressor is designed for motorcycle shocks, I have used it a few times on snowmobile rear suspension shocks ( a hell of a lot more tension) and the tool held its own like a champ, got a bit hairy and the 15 year old got nervous and backed away but it worked with no damage to the tool, I use my cordless impact gun to tighten the screw, but remember to alternate, only a few revolutions at a time. it's a nice product. I have lots of Tusk tools and am very happy, I don't work for Tusk but maybe RMATV will send me something free, hint, hint, ha.
Will this compressor tool work on a 2015 Yamaha Viking shocks?
Herbert L on Dec 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will.
What is the maximum spring rate this compressor is rated/good for? I'm curious if a 12kg/mm spring can be compressed.
Justin H on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any limit would be based on the maximum force, which would depend on how much you wanted to compress the spring. But, I don't know what maximum force they are designed for or how far you want to compress the spring.
Does it work with utv springs like Polaris rzr xp1000 springs?
travis s on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not to put Tusk down I have been very impressed with their products, but I just changed the springs on my XP 1000 this weekend and these compressors are not the best choice for the Shock Therapy spring installation. They slide on the springs and you can easily hurt yourself. I ended up going to AutoZone and renting a set of strut spring compressors, they are a much better choice for working with UTV shock springs.
