I succesfully removed the front springs on my 87 300TD with an old set of external spring compressors. I spread the springs near the bottom to fit in the lower set and did the same with the top. It was not fun, and I had visions of being wacked in the face as the springs slipped and lt loose. The second side was much easier after I got the techniqui down and trimmed the bolts to miss the suspension. I also looked into buying the tool, but just good not bring myself to make that type of investment. If you want, you can try mine. No gaurantee that they we will for you.
