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.
