Shock Spring Compressor
To remove shock springs from most OEM and aftermarket products, it is essential to have a shock spring compressor. It can handle piggy back and remote reservoir shocks with ease. This device locates the upper eyelet in a hasp and traps the outer edge of the spring on the spacer provided that locates at the top of the compressor (see illustration).
The spring is effortlessly compressed by the bottle jack to allow the clip ring or locator plates on the shock to be separated, which then ensures simple and trouble free removal of the shock spring. This is true for assembly, where the shock spring is compressed which allow the clip ring or locator plates to be put back.
This is an essential tool for anyone who wants to makes changes to their own shock with disassembly/reassembly in changing the shock spring.
Fork Spring Compressor
To disassemble upside down forks, it is essential to have a spring compressor. That fits between the axle hole at the bottom of the fork leg casting and attaches to the preload spacer.
The spring is effortlessly compressed to allow the jam nuts on the fork cap and the cartridge rod to be separated, which then ensures simple and trouble free disassembly. This is true for assembly, where the jam nuts are tightened together while the fork spring is compressed.
This is an essential tool for anyone who wants to makes changes to their own forks, whether that be with springs or with disassembly/reassembly when fitting the compression and or rebound kits.
