Default Spring Compression

Hey guys. So i need some help. I was attempting to change out the strut last night. i borrowed the spring compressors from autozone but i must have put them on wrong because when i took the top nut off everything went flying, including me. luckily no damage to anything. i planned ahead and did it out in the open not near anyone or thing. so since i screwed that up, do i use the same compression tools to get the spring compressed again or is there something else i need to do? if so how do i know how much it needs to be compressed?
i am trying to do it my self if possible.

any info would be great.

You post leads me to believe that you should not be attempting this at this point before you educate yourself or see it done by someone who knows what they are doing!

Thank God you are ok. I'm serious. Take he strut to someone that knows what they are doing. Most shops won't charge you much if you bring them the struts. Maybe someone in your area with a Max can help you out.

What is your location?

@raz76 he is in OK and is incredibly knowledgeable.

i agree with Danski... if you almost had a strut go through your body, you should be thankful youre ok and consult some suspension gurus nearby.

Do you have stock springs? If so you have to compress them A LOT!! Compress them so you can easily spin the hat on the top of the assembly. If youre not sure if its enough...compress more. You were very lucky you werent working over them...

Default Re: Spring Compression

this is what happened, autozone spring compressors dont compress enough, how do i know? because when i was switching my car back to stock i compressed the stock springs to put them back in the struts and the spring didnt compress enough for the bolt at the top of the strut to screw in properly, our springs are too big for autozone compressors i know that as a fact speaking from experience. Youre best bet is to take it to a mechanic and just let them take it out for you, they shouldnt charge much, and can definitely keep you 100% safe from any injuries

Sorry, I have to disagree. Ive taken mine apart a t least a half a dozen times and all Ive used are Autozone compressors. They are definitely close but if you put it in the right spot on the spring it will work...trust me.

Default Re: Spring Compression

AND another thing, NEVER EVER, remove a spring from a strut until the spring moves freely with the strut still bolted down, if the spring doesnt move inside the strut theres a huge chance there is still some compression in there, like i always say, better to be safe then sorry!!!

07maximan, nismo4life07, maybe my autozone just had garbage compressors, when i used mine they were nowhere near compressed enough to put in the strut, and i compressed it as much as possible

You might not have compressed the spring enough which caused everything to go flying. Those spring compressors suck if you have to wrench it by hand.

Is there a reason why you didn't contact me and make the hour drive and let me do it for you??? I have guys drive 8 to 9 hours to come see me and work on their cars. You can get seriously hurt with springs if you don't know what you're doing dude.

No offense bro but it's not because they came from Autozone. If you don't know where to place them and torque them down, you may have issues. Just think of it like this, this springs are made to hold a 3400lb car, that is a lot of force if one of those compressed springs come loose. Its not joke and people have died.

Changing brakes is one thing, you fuck up, you start over , maybe buy some more parts. You fuck up with a spring and it could be over for eternity.

thanks for the info. had i known about you before i would have definitely made the drive out to you. the bad thing is that the max is out of commission right now. the wife hit a median and popped both right side tires and bent the shock. thats what started this. so once i get the part back together and in, i have alignment issues to deal with. but that i will definitely take to the pros.

If she hit hard enough to bend the strut, you may have other issues too, like bent control arm and mounts. Might wanna check.
