Great tool for occasional useFor occasional use this tool is great! There are cheaper options but when safety (compressing coil springs) is involved, cheap is not my top criteria. For frequent use I would recommend other tools but this one is quite adequate for my needs.

Great for basic useUsed this compressor for many years with no problems. The forcing screws bow slightly under load which always made me a little nervous. Finally broke one recently on an Escalade spring. Not clear if the spring was too strong for it, or tool was fatigued. Definitely no problem for sedans.
As with any compressor, always be prepared for it to fail, and never aim it at anything you're not willing to kill.
