    just go to autozone or somewhere and rent one, you get your deposit back whenever you return it.

    x2 .  Its better than making something that isnt right and it fails allowing the spring to fly out and kill you.  I m all for making things and saving money but sometimes the savings isnt worth the risk.

    I got one from autozone the other day but it would not work on my 850 xp springs, but it definitely would not hurt to try. I bought one that says will work on any atv/snowmobile/motorcycle springs and it doesn't work for the rear shocks on the xp either.

    just buy a highlifter one
    i think it was like 30 or 40 bucks and i have used it for 3 sets so far

    of course i bought a compressor from autozone didnt fit the smaller diameter springs
    so i cut it to fit
    then it still didnt fit right and bowed the springs out until the compressor would pop off

    if you buy one or make one
    make sure to use the safety strap thing they have built on or you might take a spring to the nose

    I bought one from harbor freight for $13 to put on my HL helper spring.  Worked decent and got the job done for a one time gig but if I ever thought I would use it a few times I would invest in the HL one.

    Go get some heavy and long hose clamps. Put 3 or 4 on the spring and suck it down. Suprizingly they work good, and there cheap.
