I did not order the stinking tool!!! But I have a feeling I'm going to need it but I did not want to pay the extra 40 bucks to get it.

I couldn't find a spring tool small enough when I installed mine. Rigged up a bracket in a Workmate worktable/vise. Strapped the shock down and got help from a buddy to hold it in place, they are under a lot of tension, easy to get hurt. If I had to do it again I would buy the HL tool or take the time to fab one similar to it. Saw one somewhere on this forum. If you know of more riders interested in mods you could suggest splitting the cost of the tool as it is not model specific.

I figured I should have ordered it with the tool but I'm a cheap ass! I guess I will have to order one now and eat the extra cost.

I know I know!! But I think we can fabricate one really easy.

But now www.atvoutfitters.net are saying they can't ship the rear springs until Highlifter says they can. Something is wrong with them and Highlifter is fixing the problem.
