Hi

If you were to fit HiLo,s, You may not need a tool to compress the cone.

Simply put the HiLo at the lowest point and you should be able to re-install without a compressor. HiLo take up all the slack as the car goes down over the years as well

Removal will be pretty easy as there is no spring left in the cone, so simply un-screw the top arm bolt, remove the pin and everything should fall away.

Getting it out in the first place may be a bit difficult without one.

Have one here if it's of any use to you Keith.
