What is the best (safe) coil spring suppressor for someone who has never used one?

Thanks

about the least expensive option that Ive used that worked reasonably well

above


if your going to do the job every few months
get something a bit more substantial

IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

The best compressor for the job - or even one that will work - is dependent on what vehicle you are working on.

Example, that HF compressor won't work on many cars, but works fine on a few.
