Installing a 2" PVC spacer I was in a pinch, I couldn't find a spring compressor. A few hours later this came to mind. I don't recommend trying this at home but it worked.

Actually, thats not a bad idea.. I'm a firm believer in ,,"whatever it takes" to get a job done.

i myself used a 2" coupler with 2" pvc pipe inside the copuler. On the front i then split a piece of 1-1/2 DWV pipe and slide it over the strut down as far as it would go to work as a bushing.

Look up my lift thread. it'll have pics and stuff i think?

I never had luck with the ratchet strap. I had better luck using 4 sets of vice grips (larger ones) and putting two on each side to compress the spring.

Then I got my thumb pinched after the spring got away while trying to get the retainer clip on..... Now I own a spring compressor. best money I've spent in awhile. Some things just aren't worth getting hurt over being cheap.

Rum you can run either or but we usually run couplings. If you do use just pipe, make sure to get sch.40 solid core pipe, dwv pipe is just a foam inside
