Charles, Your post #200 here has lost it's photos! If you still have them can I request you make a separate thread about your tie down strap method in the suspension forum. Over the last few years I have sent about 40 people to this thread for this method, but the method is useless now that the pics disappeared.

It ain't rocket science, you just use a ratcheting cargo strap to compress and release the spring tension. I compressed and released my last one with 2x4's and big c-clamps.
I get messages on facebook every week asking how to do it. Charles write up and pictures show it really nicely. It's not rocket science, but if you don't wrap the tie downs in this EXACT way it is very difficult to relieve the tension safely after you compress it.
