I just rented the Sir tools M0070 model from Performance. This is the safety plate design like the one in the Mercedes manual. I cant' seem to get it to work with the rear springs on my 94 E420. The long central shaft wont fit up into the hole in the lower control arm. It is about 1/8 inch to big in diameter. There is an extra 2 inch diameter washer in the kit, that I don't know what to do with. Has anyone used one of these on a similar car? Any tips? Would the a frame compressor work better? I've tried the two cheaper models discussed in this thread, the internal one is too large to fit up into the spring and the outer one won't fit.
Thanks in advance
(Oh man, this car is sooooo fast.)
