I did this on wife's CX-5 awhile back, and I couldn't get those same strut spring compressors to fit. So I hit up Harbor Freight and picked up this beast, which worked like a charm. Will probably use it again with my sister-in-law's Honda Pilot.

Do they get your CC card when you rent it? If so I would check your statement & see if they charged you for it.


I need to change my torn ball joints also

The pic is a little deceiving. The sideways threaded bar compresses the jaws on each side. The pic is basically of the spring compressor in a sideways position.

And I have yet to figure out what the steel hexagonal shape piece is for. I didn't use it when I changed the struts on the Mazda.

You guys in the Sac area? I moved here recently and the car scene seems pretty lackluster...haven't seen very many modded anything around

Tested out the new OME suspension and 33" AT's on the Cruiser last weekend. Contemplating selling the Evo soon

Currently in Midtown, although probably moving to East Sac once my lease is up. Yeah I went to a couple of Elk Grove meets and they're mostly kids/dropouts in their parents' cars. Any good HPDE/autoX events around here? Looks like most of them are at Thunderhill

Thunderhill always has some sort of track day going on with different groups, SCCA, NASA, speedSF, etc. I went to my first track night event last week and loved it. Way more laid back than most I've been to and it's nice not making an entire day of it. Starts at 4, done by 8 not bad at all for $140 too. Next one is May 23rd I think. I'll be there.

Thunderhill has a lot of hpdes and if you're up for a drive my friends are always going to the speedSF and vtec club events at buttonwillow. There's a few SCCA autox events held at Mather field throughout the year.

Decided to take rear brakes apart to install ARP extended wheel studs, repaint calipers (have them torn apart and soaking right now) and today I installed ball joints by freezing ball joints overnight and they went in with just a couple taps. Snap ring in place and once they get back to room temp they will swell back into place. Now I have wheel bearings in the deep freezer and will be next. I will use old bearing as a tool to tap into place.

Daytona low profile Jack from HF and their 6 ton Jack stands will get your car up REAL high real quick. Check my pics above. I can ho up another 4 inches from that if I wanted to.

It's not the height that's the issue, although I've been eyeing a couple of HF's low-profile jacks because my 20-year old floor jack is a total POS. But on the Mazda there are no good center jack points near the front and rear bumpers. The jack has to go all the way back to the subframe behind the engine to jack up the whole front end at once. I was trying the other day to jack up the car using the side jack points and putting stands under the lower control arm pick-up points in front and rear, and I never could get it to sit level for some reason.

PatrickGSR94 have you bled your floor jack? Open and add oil then close, may have to add more later. My Brother recently did this and said his jack pumps way faster now. Something to think about. I'm going to try it on my older one.
