I was fideling a little bit with my springs. I thought it would be an easy job... i was wrong.
Can anybody tell me how to remove an front spring without any of the (expensive) specialist tools?

I did it with an universal spring removal tool. Price approx. 50€. It works just fine.

Just out of interest Saab works mechanics use to strap them up and cut them in half with a cutting torch to get them off. The replacement was pre-compressed and strapped up, they put them in possition and cut the straps. Job done in minutes!

Thanks for the reply's
I was just hoping that i could do the job today.
