This spring compressor for late model Spirit chassis (from approximately 1989 - up) requires an adapter plate on the top. If your Spirit/Spur has a spring top that looks like the one in the last picture, this compressor is for you. This adapter plate is required to provide a surface for the washers and bearings to sit. The bottom plate is made from solid steel and the threaded rods are rolled B7. The nuts are Grade 8 and roller thrust bearings are included for smooth operation. This compressor is based on the factory tool RH8809.
A brand new addition to this is tool is the inclusion of handle nuts. These handle nuts take the place of the regular nuts on the top and speed up compression/decompressing by at least 80%. Ya know - probably.
Both upper and lower spring plates in this kit are now powder-coated British Racing Green at no extra cost.
