Spring compression tool?
 
I am having to replace the lower ball joints on my '87 190D and I am trying to get a hold of the tool on short notice (this week). Can anyone tell me if this is a picture of the proper spring compression tool that I will need?

Also, if anybody is around the Houston, TX area and is willing to rent it to me or tell me where I can find one, I would really appreciate it! Thanks a lot.

I just received this one yesterday: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Mercedes-MB-Coil-Spring-Compressor-Repair-Parts-Tool_W0QQitemZ4631938375QQcategoryZ35625QQssPageNameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem and today I was able to remove the front spring on a CLK in under 10 minutes. For a great instructional video on using the tool see this: http://www.idrweb.nl/rst/movie/kl-0021.html
