    Any ideas on where to obtain a Klann type inner spring compressor without costing the price of the car?

    The postage might cost very close the kit price

    I've seen 'clones' for well under £200 - not cheap but more affordable than Klann, which apparently lists at £800 odd, you would want to 'feel the quality' before buying though...

    cheers

    I think Machine Mart do a set of proper spring compressors for around 200 pounds :dk:

    Thanks everyone!
    I have found some in Denmark were I have also purchased some stuff in the past: KA-7308K: TOOL SPRING SET for Mercedes 202.033 (C43 AMG)
    Difficult to get a hand on some of theses cheaper brands than Klann so as to "weigh" them and renting them from the UK would be expensive considering I live in Switzerland :D

    Thanks for the info. Guess I will definitely not risk injury using a unknown quality item, specially when compressing springs.
