    Where can I get this done? I need the spring removed from a shock , then another spring put back on. I don't want to lose my fingers or eyes, so I this case I am going to ask for help.

    From my experience Keith at the Toy Box is the best mechanic in the province and he just did a rebuild on my shock. Give him a call 726 6500.

    I use the ratchet straps. Scary but seems to work for me.

    I could see the ratchet strap method working well, until you have to release them.:p

    A big shout out to Sleepyhead for his help on Saturday morning. I was somewhat groggy from grogg the night prior so learned little. Or I am just stund as a post and am beyond learning??!?! All digits continue to occupy our hands and be both have two eyeballs. No harm done. Ratchet straps worked like a charm. Or at least it seemed to as I was on the other side of the garage hiding just in case!!!!
    sleepyhead65 and RossKean like this.

    Just happened to come across this photo on the interwebs and it seemed like a good solution that could be mocked up with some cheap items from Princess Auto.
